Watch: Niall McGinn scores stunning volley as USA defeat Northern Ireland at Windsor ParkSun, Mar 28 2021
Niall McGinn scored a stunning volley but it wasn’t enough for Ian Baraclough’s Northern Ireland to avoid defeat in their friendly with the United States.
The former Derry City smashed a fine volley into the top corner to give Ian Baraclough’s side hope of snatching a draw but, despite a late barrage, they couldn’t mount a comeback.
Goals in either half from Gio Reyna and Christian Pulisic, the latter from the penalty spot, saw the Americans to victory at Windsor Park.
McGinn’s 88th-minute strike was a mere consolation as manager Ian Baraclough remains yet to see his side win a game in normal time in any of his ten matches to date.
