  3. 'We learned good lessons'

    FT: Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    Michael O'Neill

    Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill speaking with Sky Sports: "Delighted obviously with the win and I thought we played very well again. I was disappointed with the way we conceded the goal but we were in control of the game until the opening goal.

    "It is hard to create some times, we put good balls into the box, but the set-piece worked well for the opener.

    "We learned good lessons on concentration as well, it is big for some of the players coming in and there were big performances all over the pitch."

  4. 'We got our reward'

    FT: Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    Northern Ireland's Jonny Evans speaking to Sky Sports: "Their goal knocked us a bit because we know how hard it is to score, but we kept going. It probably wasn't our best performance, but we got our reward. We wanted the six points, we have tough fixtures coming but we can't ask for any more."

  5. 'We find a way to win'

    FT: Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    Northern Ireland's Josh Magennis speaking to Sky Sports: "The rest of the lads had done the job, I was just blessed to be the one to come on and score. That is what Michael O'Neill asks of his substitute to come on and try and make a difference. We are a team that finds a way of winning.

    "We have got a squad that is developing and got a good balance with young lads like Jordan Jones and Gavin Whyte coming through and the experienced guys like Jonny Evans shoring it up at the back."

  6. We are top of the league...

    Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    Group C

    Where does that leave Group C you ask?

    Well, Northern Ireland are topping off the standings like a toupee.


    Netherlands 2-3 Germany

    And the Germans have taken the spoils in Amsterdam...


    Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    And breathe...

    Cue Sweet Caroline on the Windsor Park tannoy.

    Northern Ireland fans

    Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    A massive stop from Bailey Peacock-Farrell!

    The Northern Ireland goalkeeper spreads himself to block a point-blank shot at the back stick.

    Three minutes of the four added on played...

  10. GOAL - Netherlands 2-3 Germany

    Nico Schulz

    Precision Germany stereotypes come true to surely win it!

    A lovely incisive pass from Ilkay Gundogan frees Marco Reus who in turn serves it up on a platter for Nico Schulz.

    The Hoffenheim man measures his side-foot finish to perfection.

    A big win in the post for under-pressure Joachim Low.

  11. CLOSE!

    Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    The visitors are close as Pavel Nekhaychik's low cross is just about cleared by Paddy McNair at the near post with a visiting player closing in...

  12. GOAL - Northern Ireland 2-1 Belarus

    Josh Magennis

    Michael O'Neill grips a fist and thumps thin air on the sidelines!

    It is a superb goal as well.

    Josh Magennis brings down Craig Cathcart's long ball forward, spreads the ball wide, Stuart Dallas slips in Paddy McNair down the right edge of the box.

    His low centre is perfect and Magennis is on the spot to turn in!

    Windsor Park is swaying and singing...

    Northern Ireland 1-1 Belarus

    Pavel Nekhaychik comes on for Belarus.

    And a change for Northern Ireland too as the excellent Jordan Jones makes way for Shane Ferguson...

  14. Post update

    Northern Ireland 1-1 Belarus

    Paddy McNair whips in a cross, Kyle Lafferty is lurking with intent, but a defender's head gets it away.

    Do Northern Ireland go all out, every man pushed up, even this early in the campaign? Or do they need some caution to protect a point?

    Belarus can pass the ball about nicely and might find space on the break.

  15. Elsewhere

    Poland 1-0 Latvia

    Robert Lewandowski to the rescue. Poland were toiling in vain against the less-the-mighty Latvia, ranked 131st in the world.

    But the Bayern Munich man has found the net to spare the hosts' blushes.

  16. Post update

    Northern Ireland 1-1 Belarus

    Michael O'Neill is stalking impatiently on the sidelines.

    Time is ticking away. Fifteen minutes to find a goal and the victory that he has earmarked as vital to Northern Ireland's hopes of getting out of this group.

  17. Post update

    Northern Ireland 1-1 Belarus

    Josh Magennis unleashes his trebuchet long throw-in, slinging the ball into the penalty area. It causes chaos, but Kyle Lafferty cannot exploit it to the full, hooking his volley just over the top.


    Northern Ireland 1-1 Belarus

    Michael O'Neill changes it up. Off comes Niall McGinn and on comes striker Josh Magennis as the hosts push for a winner.


    Northern Ireland 1-1 Belarus

    Northern Ireland are asking the question...nothing doing after Kyle Lafferty's full-blooded shot thuds into Mikhail Shivakov though.

  20. GOAL - Netherlands 2-2 Germany

    Memphis Depay

    And the Dutch have doubled up.

    Memphis Depay threads a near-post finish past Manuel Neuer after digging the ball out of his feet in the midst of a penalty-box scramble.

    Level pegs.
