Lafferty Named In Northern Ireland Squad

18 May 2016

Daniel Lafferty has been named in Northern Ireland's squad for their upcoming friendly against Belarus at Windsor Park on Friday, May 27.

The Clarets defender is part of a 28-man squad which will be reduced to 23 at 12pm on Saturday, May 28.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill said: "We will use the Belarus game to look at our options, our systems and how we play. It's also a chance to look at personnel and to give players opportunities.

"We are on a good run at the minute and we want to continue that run. It is important that we approach the match in the same way as we have approached all our other games since qualification. In those we are unbeaten.

"We have won two and drawn one. We have only conceded one goal and that was from a penalty. Those are little things that build confidence and momentum going into a tournament."
