It was another frustrating night at the office for Northern Ireland in the UEFA Nations League in the 1-1 draw at home to Romania.
While the wait for a win in the competition continues, how did the individual players fare?
Here are our match ratings:
Bailey Peacock-Farrell 7: One low save early one was easily dealt with. Great fingertip save in final quarter, but no chance with Romania goal.
Jonny Evans 8: Hardly gave Romanian striker Denis Alibec a kick. Perfect man to control things in the new-look back three.
Craig Cathcart 7: Kept the door firmly closed at the back with a solid defensive performance and used the ball when we it came to him.
Daniel Ballard 9: Worth remembering that this impressive young lad was winning only his fifth cap. Never looked under pressure.
Stuart Dallas 7: Pinned back in his own half for most of the early stages, but looked dangerous when he got forward as game progressed.
Michael Smith 7: Has moved into a holding midfield role with apparent ease in the last two matches. Superb delivery into the box for the goal.
Paddy McNair 8: Regularly stretched Romania by peeling out to the right. A moment of class with a skilful turn in midfield just before half time.
Ali McCann 7: A great bursting run in the opening minute won a free kick. Great cross later on. Close to scoring a second goal in second half.
Matthew Kennedy 7: Put in a superb cross for Boyce that almost brought about a goal just before half time and another for McCann in second half.
Josh Magennis 7: Dominated in the air against a Romania defence who didn’t seem comfortable in aerial combat.
Liam Boyce 8: Looked threatening before he scored. As Northern Ireland’s only striker with creativity on the ball he needs to play more often.
Subs: Jamal Lewis (Kennedy 66) 6, Conor Washington (Boyce 66) 6, Ethan Galbraith (Smith 79) 6, Conor McLaughlin (Magennis 79) 6.
