Bos&Herz 1 – 1 N Ireland


Northern Ireland will face Slovakia for a place at Euro 2021 after beating Bosnia and Herzegovina 4-3 in their first-ever penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw in Sarajevo.

Naill McGinn’s second-half strike cancelled out Rade Krunic’s opener to force extra-time and then the first competitive shootout for Ian Baraclough’s side.

Both teams scored their first spot-kicks before Bailey Peacock-Farrell saved from Haris Hajradinovic, and Dino Hotic struck the crossbar, as Bosnia blinked first in the shootout.

George Saville blazed over but Northern Ireland held on to their advantage as Liam Boyce converted the crucial spot-kick to set up a winner-takes-all final with Slovakia on November 12.
