  • GOAL!!! BALLARD PUTS NORTHERN IRELAND IN FRONT!!! Following a corner, it's worked into Washington, who is given far too much space on the right side of the box, and the striker whips a low ball across the face of goal where Ballard is in the right place to tap in! It's 1-0 to Northern Ireland!

  • GOAL!! WASHINGTON CONVERTS!! The Northern Ireland striker has to wait until the VAR check is complete, but he doesn't allow that to unsettle him, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way before smashing into the bottom-left corner! It's 2-0 to Northern Ireland now!

  • GOAL!!! LITHUANIA GET ONE BACK!!! A Lithuania corner isn't dealt with in the box and it bounces to the edge of the area where Baravykas rushes onto it and smacks a sweet half-volley with the outside of this foot that curves away from goal before nestling in the top-left corner! What a hit! It's 2-1 now!
