Second-half goals from Esteban Valencia and Patricio Mardones condemned Northern Ireland to their second defeat in the Canada Cup in Edmonton on Thursday. The tournament will be won by the victors of tomorrow's game between Chile and Canada. Northern Ireland took the lead after seven minutes when the Crystal Palace striker Iain Dowie stabbed the ball home after goalkeeper Marco Cornez had parried a Michael Hughes shot.
