Lafferty On International Rescue

11 November 2012

Clarets' defender given Northern Ireland call-up

Danny Lafferty has been called up to Northern Ireland’s squad for their World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan in Belfast next Wednesday night.

The Clarets’ full-back, who impressed on his first Championship start of the season in Burnley’s 2-1 defeat at Ipswich Town on Saturday, has been promoted from the stand-by list following three injury withdrawals from Michael O’Neill’s original squad.

Lafferty, 23, made his full international debut at the end of last season and was an unused substitute for Northern Ireland in their memorable 1-1 Group F draw in Portugal last month.
