Praise for RoyalChris Baird put in an 'outstanding' performance for Northern Ireland on Friday night, according to his manager Michael O'Neill.
Baird played the full game in a defensive role as his country narrowly went down 1-0 away to Turkey in a game they could well have taken something from.
O'Neill said, "We kept playing in the second half and there were some excellent performances – Chris Baird and Oliver Norwood were both outstanding.
Some reports on the match incorrectly said Baird made a mistake for Turkey's goal, when O'Neill explained after the match, "[Goalkeeper] Roy [Carroll] has held his hands up. He knows himself he made the wrong decision and he's disappointed in that.
"We responded well and maybe this is another case of us not getting what we deserved."'
