Paddy McNair marked his 50th international cap by captaining his country - but Northern Ireland fell to a controversial defeat in Switzerland.
The 2-0 reverse all-but ended Northern Ireland's hopes of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, but Ian Baraclough's side will feel hard done by.
They were reduced to 10 men inside 40 minutes after Jamal Lewis was bizarrely given a second yellow card for time wasting, and the home side capitalised to take the lead before half-time.
McNair and his team-mates battled hard in the second period, but their efforts were in vain after the Swiss scored a second in stoppage time.
Northern Ireland are in WC2022 qualifying action again on Tuesday in a must-win game in Bulgaria, but they are now dependent on the results of others.
