Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill has included six Scottish Premiership-based players in his latest squad.
Goalkeepers Michael McGovern (Hamilton) and Alan Mannus (St Johnstone) have been called up for next Wednesday’sfriendly against Latvia, as have strikers Niall McGinn (Aberdeen), Josh Magennis (Kilmarnock), Billy McKay (Dundee United) and Liam Boyce (Ross County).
Former Rangers pair Steven Davis and Kyle Lafferty have also been included in the squad, as has one-time Celtic playmaker Paddy McCourt.
O’Neill’s side ended their 30-year absence from a major finals when they qualified for Euro 2016 in France with victory over Greece in Belfast last month.
