Stuart Dallas, Northern Ireland midfielder


We just had to keep our concentration. I thought we defended really well despite the late goal, but thankfully we saw it through. I just can't speak highly enough of Kyle [Lafferty]. He is the joker of the pack but he's come in today and done amazingly well. We are so excited by what we've achieved in this group so far, but there's a long, long way to go yet.

Michael O'Neill, Northern Ireland coach:


The objective was to get three points, and we did that. We tried to keep the players away from the hype and the build-up of this game. We wanted to make sure the focus was on the game and the preparation couldn't have been better. Kyle Lafferty has gone on the pitch for Northern Ireland and believes he can score every time he plays, and anytime he has pulled on the green shirt in this campaign he has been superb. He has shown what he's capable of on this kind of stage and has got himself two fantastic finishes.

I am not looking any further beyond our next qualifier against Romania, and that's our opportunity to go top of the group. If you had offered me our position at the start of the campaign, I wouldn't have thought for too long about whether I would accept. We have given ourselves a fantastic chance now and the game in June becomes very important. If we win that game, it would be hard to imagine we won't qualify, with 15 points secure and four games left.
