Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington praises Pat McCourt's performance against the Faroe Islands.

Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington said he was impressed by winger Pat McCourt after he helped his side to a 4-0 win over Faroe Islands last night.

While Aaron Hughes bagged his first international goal and Steven Davies was also on target, Worthington singled the Celtic player out for particular praise.

"Paddy is just an entertainer," said Worthington. "He's quietly confident, not a shouter or a ranter and raver, he just does it.

"There's not much more you can say, he just has magnificent individual ability.

"For his second goal you just have to stand there in amazement. Sometimes you wonder if he even knows what he is doing himself.

"He has fantastic ability but to be fair to Paddy it's not just that side of things, it's working for the team too."
