Less Than A Cap?

The following is a list of players who only appeared once for Northern Ireland, and even then only as a substitute. This is not to belittle their achievement, as there are thousands who would have given an arm for just those few minutes of glory!

List does not include those who could realistically still add to their only appearances.

Notes:
  • At 2 minutes, Peter Watson's international career is likely the shortest of any Northern Ireland player.
  • Colin McCurdy scored on his only international appearance. That goal came after 77 minutes against Australia.
