Having received a special medal from UEFA President Michel Platini before Northern Ireland's game against Georgia to recognise his record haul of 13 goals in qualifying, Healy hogged the headlines in Belfast, scoring at both ends in a 4-1 win. Kyle Lafferty played an able supporting role with two of the home side's other goals.
Montenegro had an equally thrilling result as they beat Norway 3-1 in Podgorica despite ending the game with ten men. Igor Burzanović, Branko Bošković and Radomir Djalović scored for the hosts with John Carew pulling one back before Milan Jovanović was dismissed. Iceland also had reason to celebrate after winning 2-1 in Slovakia.

A late goal from debutant Stanislav Genchev saw Bulgaria beat Finland 2-1 in Sofia, while Mirnes Šišić exploited some sloppy defending to score Slovenia's only goal in a win in Hungary.

A free-kick from captain Yossi Benayoun was decisive in Israel's 1-0 win against Chile in Ramat Gan, as FC Barcelona's Guy Asulin broke a national record, making his international debut 14 days shy of his 17th birthday.

Arunas Klimavičius was the only goalscorer as Lithuania won 1-0 at home against ten-man Azerbaijan while Belgium endured a rotten night, with debutant Axel Witsel's strike providing scant consolation as they lost 4-1 at home against Morocco.
