Northern Ireland Under-17 played Bosnia-Herzegovina today in their second group match of the UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship and the match finished in a goalless draw.
The game started with an early opportunity for Northern Ireland's Orr but her effort on target was saved by Bosnia and Herzegovina goalkeeper Mikić in the 5th minute. Both teams conceded early free kicks in dangerous areas putting pressure on both defences and on 27 minutes a reckless tackle by Bassett (Northern Ireland) resulted in the first yellow card of the game.
Despite a flurry of corners in the latter stages of the half it remained goalless after the opening 45 minutes.
Bosnia and Herzegovina started the second half strongly - Kuljanin playing a great through ball to Gačanica on 49 minutes but she failed to hit the target.
As both teams continued to try outplay each other chances were scarce. With the majority of play happening in midfield there were plenty of fouls committed by both teams but it was Bosnia and Harzegovina players Crnoja and Rovčanin who were booked by the referee.
Northern Ireland tried to mix things up by bringing on Kearney for Rubby, and Beggs for Basset, but failed to steal three points as the match finished 0-0.
Northern Ireland remain second in Group Five after securing four points from their first two games. Their final group fixture is against leaders Italy on Saturday 3rd October.
