Under-21s train in Finland ahead of U21 UEFA Euro qualifier on Tuesday

Ian Baraclough's under-21s have arrived in Finland and took part in training today ahead of their UEFA U21 Euro Qualifier on Tuesday 10 September. 

Man of the Match against Malta on Friday and Stoke City midfielder Jake Dunwoody believes the team have the quality to get three points this time round. 

He said: "The draw against Malta was just one of those days. We created over 20 chances and just couldn't put one away.

"It would have been nice to get another late winner of course but we'll just have to look to Finland now and see what happens. Hopefully we can put them away."

Northern Ireland v Finland will take place in Oulu, KO 7:00pm Eastern European Summer Time. 

The U21s go into the match with Finland following a 0-0 draw with Malta in their opening game of the UEFA U21 Euro campaign at the Ballymena Showgrounds on Friday. They will also face Denmark, Romania and Ukraine in Group 8 in the qualification process for the finals in Hungary and Slovenia.

Northern Ireland U21s: Conor Hazard (captain), Eoin Toal, Bobby Burns, Kofi Balmer, Jake Dunwoody, Alfie McCalmont, Kyle McClean, David Parkhouse, Shea Gordon, Lewis Thompson, Caolan Boyd-Munce. Substitutes (used) Ethan Galbraith, Cameron Palmer, Lewis McCann, Chris Gallagher; (unused) Tommy Scott, Pierce Bird, Caolan Marron, Ali McCann, Jack Scott.
