Michael O’Neill says Northern Ireland did not deserve to lose against Austria after a late goal condemned them to another Nations League defeat.

Valentino Lazaro’s 92nd-minute goal saw the hosts beaten 2-1 at Windsor Park in their final game of the competition, meaning they end the campaign with no points, no wins and relegation to League C.

But Northern Ireland did match Austria for much of the game, with Corry Evans’ equaliser their first goal in four internationals, and O’Neill believes his side should have got something for their efforts.
