Leeds United had a couple of representatives on international duty for Northern Ireland on Tuesday night.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Stuart Dallas both played as Michael O'Neill's side beat Belarus 1-0 in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Dallas only had a second-half cameo but the Leeds goalkeeper posted a very decent display between the sticks.

Peacock-Farrell, who played once for United last season after Kiko Casilla was signed in January, made a number of smart saves during the second half, laying the foundations for his country's late winner through Paddy McNair on 86 minutes.


His best contribution came on 71 minutes when he tipped Ihar Stasevich's effort past the post, and here's now Northern Irish fans reacted to the Leeds star's display:





Despite his saves, the 22-year-old did have a shaky moment in the second period when he slipped at a costly time, but O'Neill's side weren't punished.

Apart from that, it was a wonderful overall performance from the youngster, who returns to Thorp Arch for pre-season training in a few weeks.

Casilla's error in the playoff semi-final defeat by Derby County in May might've made Marcelo Bielsa doubt the Spaniard, so Peacock-Farrell will be desperate to displace the former Real Madrid man for the start of next season.
