It was a poor decision. But Norn Ireland we're second best all night. Didnt even have a shot on target for the whole game. Scoreline was probably about right.

I Think 0-0 was about right.... The Swiss only scored from that shocking penalty.

Thought Norn Ireland were not at it last night, but going to Basel with a 0-0 would have been great for them, they defend with thier lives and would only have needed to knick a goal to make the Swiss need 2.

They now go there needing to score, and will probably get opened up easily when trying to go forward.
I will be watching the game, but think the Swiss will time waste all game, like they were doing in the latter stages last night.

Hopefully those boys can do it though.

Switzerland were the better team on the night unquestionably, but they only scored as a result of a shocking referee. That was one of the worst decisions I have ever seen. Never a penalty.

Would love to see N.Ireland get a result over there

Fantastic double save from Randolph out in Copenhagen. He really can be a top keeper on his day.

No Ivory Coast in next summer's World Cup. Their keeper saw to that, ****ed up big time for both of Morocco's goals today, so they qualify from Africa, along with Tunisia, for the first time since France '98 Egypt, Senegal and Nigeria

I was watching in Tipp Town. Enjoyed the game. Got to be happy taking a draw back to Dublin. I’ve got tickets for England Brazil at Wembley so won’t see the second leg but you’ve got a real chance.

Sort of like your lot at the moment!

We did well against Sweden, Italy and France in the Euros when we went for it. Sort of like West Ham.
