Michael O’Neill believes set-pieces could hold the key to improving Northern Ireland’s dismal goalscoring record.

They have hardly looked more potent in friendly outings and go into Thursday morning’s (1am kick-off BST) friendly in Chile on the back of three successive blanks against Turkey, Cyprus and Uruguay.
