  • Muriqi puts his side 1-0 up!!! He steps up for the penalty, and places it into the bottom right corner. Peacock-Farrell guesses the right way, but the spot-kick had too much power on it and squeezed in.

  • It's 2-0!!! Bytyqi doubles his side's advantage with a brilliant finish, after an excellent cross from Rashica on the right picked him out in the box. Bytyqi took it first-time, and his shot was too powerful for Peacock-Farrell as the ball nestles in the back of the net.

    28'
  • Northern Ireland are back in it!!! Lavery halves the deficit just before half-time as he met a looped Spencer cross from the right. The Blackpool striker came flying in at the back post to nod home and make it 2-1. It's game on.

  • Muriqi makes it 3-1!!! He adds his second of the game, after Kastrati picked him out in acres of space in the middle. The cross comes off Muriqi's thigh and flies into the roof of the net, to restore Kosovo's two goal advantage.

  • It's 3-2!!! Northern Ireland have a lifeline back into this game, as Ballard rises highest to meet a Thompson free-kick. He does superbly to not only get up and meet the delivery, but also to head home and give his team a chance.
