There were amazing scenes last night as a Bolton striker found the back of the net.

Yes, Josh Magennis was on target for his country as Northern Ireland came back from behind to beat Estonia 2-1 in Tallinn to maintain their 100% record in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Magennis was named on the bench yesterday, as has been the case for most of the last year, but also after scoring the winner in his country’s last qualifier, he did the same again after replacing midfielder George Saville in the 69th minute, just over 10 minutes later, he would be turning in Jordan Jones’ low cross to score his first goal of any description since March.

Magennis started his first season at Wanderers reasonably well, but has failed to score in the league since September, only scoring for us since in the FA Cup, when he got a hat-trick against Walsall in the third round.

He is set to remain with us as he has time on his contract still, but speaking to the Irish News this week, he seemed open to the possibility of leaving without explicitly forcing a move.
