World Cup: Azerbaijan 2-0 Northern Ireland – Feeble North Lose Again (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Azerbaijan 2-0 Northern Ireland – 2014 World Cup Qualifiers – 11th October 2013

Soccer - FIFA World Cup Qualifying - Group F - Azerbaijan v Northern Ireland - Bakcell Arena

Two second-half goals from the hosts inflicted yet another somewhat embarrassing defeat on Northern Ireland, with Michael O’Neill’s 3-5-2 formation change failing to kickstart his side’s ailing campaign.

Rufat Dadasov (58 mins) and Mahir Shukorov (90 mins) were the goalscorers for the hosts, with Shurorov’s late free-kick goal coming after Manchester United defender Jonny Evans was sent off for kicking out at Rauf Aliyev.

The Irish did fashion a number of chances of their own, with Martin Paterson hitting the woodwork, but overall, O’Neill’s charges have a lot of work to do before they make any kind of mark on international football.

  2. Jarren says:

    Yes, Tony. We beat Spain.

    …in 2006.

    We’ve not so much came down to earth with a bump since then, moreso we’ve sank underground.

    Luxembourg & Azerbaijan kicked our arses.

    To me, that DEFINITELY qualifies us as “feeble”.
