Northern Ireland lost 2-0 to suffer their second defeat in three World Cup qualifiers after crumbling late in the Group Three game against Slovenia.

Goals from Milivoje Novakovic and substitute Zlatan Ljubijankic in the 84th and 85th minute did the damage.

It was a heartbreaking end to the match for the province who had shown good discipline until the last six minutes.
