Michael O’Neill says he is ‘devastated’ as Northern Ireland slumped to a 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands after conceding three goals in the last 10 minutes.

The visitors had defended valiantly for the vast majority of the game, and took a shock lead against the run of play after 75 minutes when Josh Magennis rose above Matthijs de Ligt to head home and send Northern Ireland fans into ecstasy.
