A wonder goal, a punch-up and a plea from Sir Alex Ferguson are Keith Gillespie's memories of a famous Northern Ireland game against Austria from years gone by.

Northern Ireland take on the Austrians tonight in the Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna before finishing the Nations League campaign against Romania on Wednesday.

Gillespie made his second, proud appearance in a Northern Ireland shirt against Austria 26 years ago in the aforementioned stadium.
