Kyle Lafferty hails Northern Ireland spirit

Kyle Lafferty says that Northern Ireland showed their spirit to rescue a draw with Hungary in their Euro 2016 qualifier at Windsor Park.

Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty has said that the team showed great spirit to come from a goal down to draw with Hungary in their Euro 2016 qualifier.

The 27-year-old striker netted in the fourth minute of injury time to snatch a 1-1 draw for Michael O'Neill's side at Windsor Park on Monday evening, having fallen behind to Richard Guzmics's effort and had Chris Baird sent off.

The result keeps Northern Ireland top of Group F and means that they need two points from their next two games to secure a place at next summer's finals.

"We knew Hungary are a good team but we dug deep and realised what a good team we can be," Lafferty told UEFA's official website.

"Every player stuck to his task and everyone who watched the game will realise what good team spirit we have – this team doesn't know when it's beaten, and we're not afraid of anybody."

Lafferty has scored seven goals in the qualification campaign.
