Michael O'Neill includes Lafferty and Sykes in panel for Luxembourg and Germany

Mark Sykes and Kyle Lafferty have been called up to the Northern Ireland squad for the upcoming games against Luxembourg and Germany.

Lafferty, Northern Ireland's second top scorer, recently joined Norwegian outfit Sarpsborg 08. He will fly in from Norway this evening and Sykes will also link up with the squad today.

The call-ups by Michael O'Neill follow injuries to defender Michael Smith and winger Jordan Jones.

Northern Ireland host Luxembourg in an international challenge match at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park tomorrow (1945) before taking on Germany in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier against Germany at home on Monday.
