Northern Ireland U19 Manager Craigan said: "I'm delighted with the performance of the players considering it's our first game together as a group in 14 months. It was a tough night physcially for the players but they stuck to their task and it's a great learning curve for them. They've set a marker down for the year ahead in terms of work ethic and performance."
Northern Ireland starting lineup: Brett Long, Scott Whiteside, Mark Edgar, Michael Newberry, Levi Ives, Jordan Thompson, Chris Paul, Charlie Owens, Stevie Fallon, Ben Kennedy, Andy Mooney.
