Scotland Beat Northern Ireland at Hampden Park


Ahead of a fresh round of Euro 2016 Qualification games this weekend, the UK football results last night were on the quiet side. With none of the Football Leagues in action, all eyes were on the spirited clash between Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Played out on the evening of Wednesday 25 March, Northern Ireland battled for much of the game. However, they were unable to display creativity when under pressure from the Scots. Eventually, though, the Scots were able to make a breakthrough when Christophe Berra struck in the 85th minute. There was simply no time left for Northern Ireland to level the game.

Scotland will progress confidently on to their qualifying game on Sunday (29 March), which is at home against minnows Gibraltar. Northern Ireland, meanwhile, have a much tougher task in facing Finland at Windsor Park. They must rebound from their defeat in Scotland if they want to take the three points.
