Kilmarnock striker Josh Magennis vows to play his part for Northern Ireland at Euro 2016



Northern Ireland striker Josh Magennis has vowed to do whatever is asked of him at Euro 2016.

The Kilmarnock player came on at half-time in Saturday’s goal-less draw against Slovakia in his country’s final warm-up game.

And with Kyle Lafferty set to spearhead Northern Ireland’s attack when the competition gets underway, Magennis is likely to be used from the bench.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, he said: “I always want to play to show Michael what I can do.

”Every player wants to be involved and when he changed things at half-time I was delighted to get on.

“It was just about working hard and making sure you didn’t give Michael an excuse to shout at you in the changing room after the game.

“If you’re not in the starting eleven, the fundamentals have to be the same when you step in; nothing else is good enough.

“We’re in France now and this is what dreams are made of. We want to show everyone what we can do on the big stage.”
