Midfielder says three points the most important thing

Chris Brunt scored his first international goal against San Marino in 2009.

Now, eight years later, the midfielder says the important thing when the two sides meet each other in  a FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday night is that Northern Ireland take home three points. 

“I can’t guarantee any goals anymore. I used to score a few goals when I was a bit younger, but that’s not really been my game the last few years," said Brunt.

“It would be lovely to get a goal but obviously it’s not always as easy as that, it’s more important that we make sure we win the game.”
