10 years since Healy's hat-trick against Spain

Healy sent the Green and White Army wild with delight in the Euro 2008 qualifier - and it all came just days after a 3-0 defeat to Iceland.

Northern Ireland's all-time top scorer punished a defensive mistake to cancel out Xavi's opener. Spain edged ahead again through David Villa, but that man Healy smashed home from Sammy Clingan's free-kick to restore parity.

Then, in a moment of sheer magic, the clinical frontman sealed victory with a delightful lob over Iker Casillas. Good times never seemed so good!
