Under 21 Euro qualifier

Spain 1 - Northern Ireland 2

Spain’s 100% record in the competition came to an end after they were surprisingly beaten 1-2 by Northern Ireland on Tuesday. Having already qualified for next summer’s finals, Luis De la Fuente made several changes to his line up. However with less than ten minutes gone they found themselves two down, Lavery charging through from his own half to open the scoring, and Donnelly making it two from the penalty spot after Smyth was fouled in the area. Hazard saved a second penalty from Borja Mayoral shortly before the break, and the visiting keeper made a string of saves before he was finally beaten by Rafa Mir in injury time. (11.09.18)
