Berra's late goal helps Scotland beat Northern Ireland 1-0
March 26 , 2015
Christophe Berra scored the lone goal of the match as Scotland defeated Northern Ireland 1-0 in an international friendly at Hampden Park.
Berra’s late goal came in the 85th minute as he headed home a corner by Matt Ritchie.
The win is being seen as good preparation for Gordon Strachan’s boys before their qualifier against Gibraltar for the European Championship. The Scotland manager said it was “important to win” against Northern Ireland “just to make us feel good about ourselves” ahead of the Sunday clash.
