Penalty gifts Switzerland advantage over Northern Ireland

Chris Brunt says the Northern Ireland team are disappointed with the penalty decision that gifted Switzerland a 1-0 win in tonight’s FIFA World Cup play-off first leg in Belfast. 

The visitors were awarded a penalty in the 57th minute after the ball struck Corry Evans inside the penalty box. Ricardo Rodriguez converted the spot kick. 

“We’ve got to go and try to win the game now. It would have been nice to leave here with something to take to Basel with us, but it maybe sets us up a little bit differently for Sunday.”
