Northern Ireland vs USA: USA end wait for European victory with Belfast win


The USA earned their first win over European opposition since 2015 with a 2-1 victory over Northern Ireland in Belfast.

Giovanni Reyna‘s deflected strike in the first half put the visitors on their way to a first win over a European nation since Germany six years ago.

Into the second half, Christian Pulisic won a penalty when he was tripped up by Daniel Ballard. The Chelsea man picked himself up to convert the spot-kick himself.

Niall McGinn netted a spectacular late consolation as the US held on to beat European opposition for the first time in six attempts and 2,118 days.
