Northern Ireland's Post-War Penalties

In 1892 Ireland were awarded the first ever penalty in an international match. Sam Torrans' kick, against England, was saved by William Rowley. The idea of the penalty kick had been proposed by an Armagh-man, William McCrum, in 1890 and adopted into the laws of the game the following year.

Since the Second World War Northern Ireland have enjoyed a mixed record from the spot. The known penalty takers are listed below.
