Southampton midfielder Steven Davis played the second half, as Northern Ireland beat New Zealand 1-0 in a friendly match, at Windsor Park.
Saints' club captain, who also skippers his country, was named among the substitutes by manager Michael O'Neill, as he gave some of his youngsters a chance.
Davis was introduced at the interval for Matthew Lund, with Northern Ireland already in front by that stage, thanks to Liam Boyce's sixth-minute goal.
That effort proved to be enough to separate the sides, despite the visitors going close in the second half, with Kosta Barbarouses hitting the post.
Northern Ireland's attention now turns to a big World Cup qualifier away to Azerbaijan, on Saturday 10th June.
O'Neill's side are currently second in Group C, with ten points from their first five games, behind only world champions Germany at the halfway stage.
