McLaughlin shines in fine Northern Ireland victory

Defender plays a key role in crucial win over Azerbaijan

12 June 2017

Town defender Conor McLaughlin played the full 90 minutes as Northern Ireland picked up a vital 1-0 win over Azerbaijan in Baku on Saturday.

Stuart Dallas' goal in second half injury time ensured Michael O'Neill's side remained second in their 2018 World Cup qualifying group - only behind Germany.

McLaughlin put in his usual sold display at right wing-back for O'Neill's side, keeping another clean sheet as the Green and White Army look to qualify for their first World Cup since 1986.
