Northern Ireland fell to a second defeat in the UEFA Nations League on Friday night as they lost 1-0 away at Austria.

Having been beaten 2-1 by Bosnia and Herzegovina at Windsor Park in their last UEFA Nations League clash, Northern Ireland headed to Vienna looking for a better result against Austria.

However, Michael O'Neill's side drew a blank in front of goal without absent striker Kyle Lafferty, and they ended up losing to a second half goal.

 

West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic raced clear with 20 minutes to play and finished past Bailey Peacock-Farrell, scoring the only goal of the game.

With two defeats in two, Northern Ireland are now facing relegation in the UEFA Nations League, and there is much for O'Neill to consider.

O'Neill has gone with Leeds United's Peacock-Farrell in goal of late, and despite criticism of his goalkeeping against Bosnia, he was still in the side against Austria.

Peacock-Farrell did have one nightmare against Austria, as he picked up a backpass to give away a free kick and then receive a yellow card for holding onto the ball too long, with fans slamming him for that, with one fan even calling him 'thick'.

Others were split on the stopper, with some praising his performance, and others a little less convinced, with one Leeds fans adding that he may not be seasoned enough for the Whites to win promotion this season.
