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.
