Michael O’Neill’s first match in charge of Northern Ireland didn’t change their fortunes as Norway defeated them 3-0.

Michael O’Neill –

“We are very disappointed with the result, there is no getting away from that. But it was not a fair reflection on the game. When we look at it tomorrow we will find a lot of positives there, and there were some good performances. We had to make changes in the back four and that disrupted us. It was disappointing to lose a goal to a set piece just before half-time. But we saw some players like Shane Ferguson and Dean Shiels who had very good games and Sammy Clingan did well too. It is disappointing to lose two late goals when we were pushing to get something out of the game. I thought the scoreline was slightly harsh on us.”

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill not too downhearted
