BAILEY Peacock-Farrell was delighted to leave his 'mark on the game' after the young Burnley keeper was Northern Ireland's hero in the penalty shoot-out victory over Boznia-Herzegovina.

The 23-year-old saved Haris Hajradinovic's effort as Northern Ireland won 4-3 on spot kicks to book a place in the finals of the Euro 2020 play-offs in dramatic fashion.

Northern Ireland had trailed to Rade Krunic's 13th minute opener before Niall McGinn equalised early in the second half.

The teams could not be separated for the remainder of the 90 minutes and extra time - with Peacock-Farrell making several fine saves throughout the night - and the game went to penalties.

The Burnley keeper, who only made his Clarets debut in the Carabao Cup win over Millwall last month, said he was fully prepared and ready for the drama of the shoot-out.

"Going into the penalties, that's where you've got everything to gain as a keeper, you've got your opportunity to leave your mark on the game," said Peacock-Farrell who also played in the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the following round of the competition.

"We'd done a lot of preparation. We had a system, we'd watch their penalties and tried to work out how they were going to shape up.

"A couple of players changed their mind from what we thought they were going to do, but sometimes it's a mixture of looking at your preparation and gut feeling.

"There are so many factors, not only yourself but also the penalty taker. A shoot-out is a high-pressure situation, so where's the most comfortable place to put the penalty?

"That's what you've got to figure out from the body language, the run-up and their history."

Northern Ireland will now face Slovakia - penalty shoot-out winners over the Republic of Ireland - at Windsor Park next month for a place in the final.
