Comments:

Steven Davis winner secures first friendly win since 2008 for Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland had a run of 23 friendly games without a win. Northern Ireland are unbeaten in eight matches, the first time they have achieved that feat since 1985-86, when Billy Bingham was in charge

Comments:

Latvia are without a win in their last 22 away games, their last victory came on 2 September 2011, against Georgia
