Northern Ireland's slim hopes of qualifying automatically for the Euro 2020 finals ended as they drew 0-0 with the Netherlands in Belfast on Saturday night.

Captain Steven Davis blasted a first-half penalty over the bar - in what may have been Michael O'Neill's last game in charge at Windsor Park. 

Northern Ireland have their final group game in Germany on Tuesday, but are still in with a chance of qualification through the play-offs in March. The draw is next week.
