David Healy was delighted with his two-goal haul against Liechtenstein.

The Northern Ireland striker continued his wonderful form at international level with a brace, which now takes him to 31 for the province.

Healy has bagged memorable goals against the likes of Spain and England in recent seasons, but he insists that it is just as important to score against a team like Liechtenstein.


"It doesn't matter who, you don't look back and see who you scored against - two goals against Liechtenstein is the same as two against Sweden, Spain or England, or whoever, they all count the same," he told Sky Sports News.

Healy spared time to praise strike partner Kyle Lafferty, who opened his account for his country.

"I am pleased, and very pleased for Kyle to get off the mark. I know how I felt when I scored my first goal at Windsor Park," he said.


The game at Windsor Park was Nigel Worthington's first as boss of Northern Ireland and the result took them to second in their Euro 2008 qualifying group.

The former Norwich chief was pleased to get off the mark with a victory, saying: "The result was paramount and we got it.

"The performance was okay after the summer recess. There will be more to come.

"Getting into second spot was the boost we needed and we now look forward to the next game."
