Northern Ireland vs Slovakia LIVE: Result and reaction from Euro 2020 play-off final tonight

Northern Ireland’s Euro 2020 dream is over after they lost 2-1 to Slovakia after extra time in their play-off final.

Juraj Kucka had put the away side ahead in the first half, but Ian Baraclough’s men found an equaliser late on when Milan Skriniar put through his own net – only for Michal Duris to fire home the winner in extra time and seal a place for his nation at the finals next summer.

It’s a tough one to take for Ian Baraclough and his players. The excellent fans in attendance tonight will be devastated, too. It seemed like it might be Northern Ireland’s night when Skriniar’s own goal sent the game to extra time, but it’s not to be.

Chance! The first delivery is cleared, but then Thompson sends a cross back into the box. Evans meets it and sends a header straight at Rodak, putting his head in his hands in disbelief.

There will be three added minutes.
