Football scores: Northern Ireland 0-0 Switzerland

Switzerland had a penalty saved by Bailey Peacock-Farell as they were part of one of the drab 0-0 football scores in World Cup qualifying. It was an intense match with both sets of midfielders vying to dominate the other at Windsor Park. Peacock-Farell kept out Haris Seferovic’s penalty which was a tame effort, to say the least. The keeper ensured that it would not be a repeat of four years ago when a penalty from Ricardo Rodrigues ended Northern Ireland’s hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Managers Reaction

“You cannot knock our work rate or endeavor, we were solid throughout as a team and they found us difficult to break down. I couldn’t be prouder of the players. The young players became men. There were no clear-cut chances apart from the penalty, which was debatable in my eyes.” Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough said. “The guy got in front of Michael [Smith]. He had his hand on his back but there was no push there. By the time it happened, the ball was over everybody’s heads and was going out of play.”

“It wasn’t stopping him from getting to the ball. He threw himself to the ground because he knew the ball was going out of play,” he added. “By the letter of the law, he has a hand on him (but) there are so many situations when there is a hand on a player, if we’re going to start giving penalties, we’re going to get 10 penalties a game.”
