City's Caroline Weir climbed off the bench to score the only goal of the game as Scotland beat Northern Ireland 1-0.

Weir, winning her 69th cap for her country, came on after 64 minutes in the friendly clash with the score still 0-0.

But after giving possession away on the left of their own box, Northern Ireland defender Toni-Leigh Finnegan tripped Christie Murray and the ref pointed to the spot.

Weir stepped up and though the keeper guessed right, she tucked a low drive into the bottom right corner to settle the contest,

It was Weir's first goal for Scotland in almost two years.
