Azerbaijan climbed off the foot of FIFA World Cup qualifying Group F thanks to a 2-0 victory against Northern Ireland.

Berti Vogts's team had failed to win any of their previous eight qualifiers and the early signs did not augur well for the hosts. They slowly wrested back the initiative, however, and went in front when Rüfat Dadaşov struck 13 minutes after the interval. Northern Ireland's misery was compounded when Jonny Evans was sent off and Mahir Shukurov curled in the resulting 95th-minute free-kick.
