Tommy Wright, Gary Fleming, Mal Donaghy, Gerry Taggart, Steve Morrow, Kevin Wilson, Steve Lomas, Jim Magilton, Michael Hughes (Kingsley Black), Phil Gray, Jimmy Quinn (Iain Dowie)

Bryan Hamilton – “Billy’s [Bingham] last result – that draw against the Republic – was a great achievement but my first game in charge produced an even better result: beating Romania in a friendly here last month. Now we want to build on that.”

* Trivia –

Gheorghe Hagi was sent off midway through the second half for spitting in Phil Gray’s face. Hagi would go onto star in the 1994 World Cup a few months later.

Hamilton’s fine start

N. Ireland 2, Romania 0

Hamilton happy to play dictator and disciple: Northern Ireland’s new manager is ambitious to prove his worth at the highest level.
