Northern Ireland’s Nations League anguish deepened after a 3-2 loss to Kosovo in Pristina, prompting some fans to openly criticize Ian Baraclough.

Kosovo took control early on with to goals from Vedat Muriqi and Zymer Bytyqi, the first of which was a penalty.

Even though Shayne Lavery equalized on the stroke of half-time, Muriqi’s second goal at the opening of the second half should have put the game to bed, not with standing Dan Ballard’s late header.

Northern Ireland’s winless streak in this competition now stands at 13 games after their latest defeat.

After their relegation, the squad started League C Group 2 as the top seed, and Baraclough boldly said that they would aim for 12 points from their June fixtures, but they have only won one of their three games.

As he approached the away fans in Pristina, he was greeted with chants of “cheerio.” “It makes sense,” Baraclough stated. “They’ve arrived, they want to follow and watch a team… but what about the players who are being groomed for the future?”

“We knew we’d have to go through some suffering, and we are as things progress.” You’ll notice progress, and you’ll notice a difference between the previous two games and tonight’s.”

With a 1-0 victory over Switzerland in Geneva, Spain earned their first Nations League victory of the season. Luis Enrique’s side took the lead in the 13th minute when Pablo Sarabia turned in Marcos Llorente’s cross After two consecutive draws, the team recovered.
