Holden's Northern Ireland Under-21s keep Euro dream alive

City striker Rory Holden helped Northern Ireland Under-21s beat Iceland to move second in their group and keep their Euro qualification dream alive. 

Holden played his part in the 1-0 victory, secured through Daniel Ballard’s 89th minute header, when the Arsenal defender connected with Jamie McDonagh’s inswinging corner.

In wet and windy conditions in Reykjavik, Ian Baraclough’s side looked to be heading for a goalless draw despite creating chances, including one for Liam Donnelly on 52 minutes after Holden carried the ball deep into the Iceland area, but his effort was well over the crossbar.

Victory keeps Northern Ireland’s chances of finishing second in the group alive, with the decisive match taking place on Tuesday night (October 16th) at Windsor Park against third place Slovakia, who have a game in-hand.
