Still all to play for and we're behind the boys all the way

Editor's Viewpoint

A night which began filled with optimism almost ended in disaster only to be partially rescued at the death. Northern Ireland's football team needed a win to qualify for the European Championship in France next year but went behind to Hungary due to a goalkeeping error.

The team's cause seemed lost when one player was sent off but deep into injury time they scored an equaliser which was due reward for the players' fighting spirit. So it's still all to play for but two key players will be missing for the next match. Northern Ireland teams never make it easy for their fans but we are all still behind the boys in green.
