Conor Washington marked his home debut by earning Euro 2016-bound Northern Ireland victory over Slovenia in Monday’s friendly at Windsor Park.

The QPR striker, 23, charged his way through and turned to shoot low past keeper Jan Oblak in the 42nd minute.

Northern Ireland have now gone 10 games unbeaten for the first time.

Slovenia had a chance to equalise in the second half but veteran keeper Roy Carroll superbly saved Milivoje Novakovic’s penalty.

The 66th-minute spot-kick was awarded when West Brom defender Jonny Evans pulled back Miral Samardzic as a corner came into the area.

Notts County keeper Carroll made another fine stop in the 89th minute to keep out a low shot by Valter Birsa.
