The international break is in full flow, and on Thursday evening we saw a lot of action from the home-nations.
For many Leeds fans, the main event will have been England vs Wales as Kalvin Phillips and Tyler Roberts squared off on the international stage, and while Phillips earnt a lot of plaudits for his showing, there was another incredible international display going unnoticed elsewhere.
Indeed, Stuart Dallas put in an brilliant showing as Northern Ireland moved one step closer to the European Championships next year.
The Northern Irishman was absolutely vital in his country’s effort against Bosnia and Herzegovina, as Ian Baraclough’s team overcame a side boasting talent from some of Europe’s top clubs, such as Barcelona, Roma and Arsenal.
Dallas was deployed at right-back, a position he hasn’t played in at all this season for his club, and despite playing out of position, he performed remarkably as his side held out against some mighty pressure.
The deadlock inevitably meant that a penalty shootout was in order, and Dallas made no mistake from the spot, converting his penalty to help his country on their way to a memorable victory.
Understandably, a lot of media coverage this week will be around Phillips’ England performances, but Dallas’ work for Northern Ireland certainly shouldn’t be ignored.
