Northern Ireland saying ‘goodbye Russia’?

Tweet Northern Ireland 0 Switzerland 1 A surprising defeat left Northern Ireland with a Swiss mountain to climb in the second leg of the World Cup play-offs following a controversial penalty. Switzerland dominated the ball early on but were nearly caught out on a counter-attack that was stopped by a crunching tackle from Fabian Schar on Stuart Dallas.
