N Ireland vs Luxembourg
International Match

Windsor Park

A terror goal from Kevin Malget was sufficient to give an Northern Ireland side a 1-0 victory over Luxembourg.
Because both sides looked to challenges that were important to emerge on Monday malget strangely headed eight minutes prior to half-time to settle on a match.
That is a Euro 2020 qualifier from Germany, as he sprung a few surprises at a youthful starting line-up a game which loomed big in Michael O’Neill’s thinking.
Cardiff defender Ciaron Brown – uncapped at any level and just called into Ian Baraclough squad – began and seemed guaranteed as O’Neill made eight changes to the side which beat Belarus.
Corry Evans, captain for the night , survived, along with Josh Magennis and goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, but Jonny Evans, Craig Cathcart and Conor Washington did not make the squad.
Rather, Alfie McCalmont the Bobby Burns and Ethan Galbraith took their places.
They’d take the lead before the break, although o’Neill’s side would not manage a shot on target in the opening 45 minutes.
After Luxembourg failed to take care of a corner, george Saville headed the ball back in the mixture. Though goalkeeper Moris beat Tom Flanagan it period up until Malget.
Luxembourg were stronger to start the second half, with Vincent Thill and Leandro Martins obtaining the shots but tested Peacock-Farrell.
Liam Donnelly – who has five goals to Motherwell in eight to start the year – arrived in the second half to his second cap and got his first global goal after.
Northern Ireland now host Germany at European Qualifiers Group C, dwell on Sky Sports Main Event on Monday at 7.45pm.
