'Chuffed' - Leeds fans react as 26-year-old scores last-gasp international winner
By Danny Wright
Stuart Dallas scored a last-gasp winner while on international duty with Northern Ireland on Saturday – and Leeds fans are delighted for their winger.
The 26-year-old earned his first senior international goal in the 90th minute of the 1-0 win at Azerbaijan while playing at left-back.
Three points sees Northern Ireland move within touching distance of Group C leaders Germany in the 2018 World Cup qualifying stages, who play San Marino at home later on Saturday.

Dallas moved to Elland Road two years ago from Brentford but has failed to impress the majority of fans with his performances in West Yorkshire.
He played 35 times across all competitions this season, scoring three goals and supplying three assists as the Whites fell just short of qualifying for the play-off places.

However the Leeds faithful took to Twitter on Saturday to congratulate Dallas on netting his first international goal for Northern Ireland – with one fans saying that he is ‘chuffed’.

Dallas has made a total of 84 appearances for Leeds since his switch from Brentford two years ago and has scored eight goals.
His Northern Ireland side currently stand a good chance of qualifying for the play-off spot to get themselves a spot in the Russian World Cup next year.
They are five points clear of Czech Republic in second place of Group C and they face Norway on Saturday evening.
