Clarets International: Lafferty in Irish Squad
Burnley left-back Danny Lafferty has been added to Northern Ireland`s squad for their Group F World Cup qualifier against Portugal to be played in the Drago Stadium, Porto on Tuesday 16th October (Kick-Off 8:45pm)
Lafferty was originally on the stand-by list but has now been called-up following injury withdrawals from Michael O`Neill`s original 24-man squad despite only featuring in one match for the Clarets so far this season.
The 23 year old former Derry City left-back won his first full cap for Northern Ireland in a friendly defeat to Holland at the end of last season.
There was also some good news for a couple of our youth players on the International front.
Goalkeeper Conor Mitchell and defender Cameron Dummigan have been included in Northern Ireland`s under-17 squad for a round of European Championship games in Estonia from 21-26 October.
