Liam Donnelly celebrates his winner against Albania

Pools star Liam Donnelly was the Northern Ireland Under-21s hero once again as they defeated Albania on Thursday night.

The defender kept his cool to slide home a 95th-minute penalty to score the only goal of the game and hand his team all three points from a tight contest at Mourneview Park.

Donnelly skippers Northern Ireland’s Under-21 side and was quick to take the responsibility from the spot as Ian Barraclough’s men moved top of their Euro 2019 qualification group with two wins from two.

The Pools man was also the match-winner in the Green and White Army’s opening qualification victory when he scored a similarly late penalty against Estonia in June.
