Maxwell joins Northern Ireland squad for Hungary games

Cliftonville Ladies striker Danielle Maxwell has been added to the Northern Ireland senior women’s squad for the upcoming UEFA Women’s Nations League double header against Hungary.

Maxwell replaces club mate Kirsty McGuinness, who has withdrawn from the panel for personal reasons.

Northern Ireland senior women’s team manager Tanya Oxtoby has a 24-strong squad to choose from as she aims to make an impact in the inaugural Nations League.

The squad have been training in Belfast this week before flying out to Hungary tomorrow (Wednesday) to make final preparations for the first of the two games against the Hungarians.

Matchday one in the League B Group 1 double header is on Friday (27 October) at Gyirmoti Stadion in Gyor, the main city of north-west Hungary. The game will have a 5.15pm kick-off UK time.

And next Tuesday (31 October) the two sides will meet again at Seaview Stadium in Belfast, with a 7pm start.

Tickets are available for the home game against Hungary on 31 October. They are priced at £14 for adults and £7 for juniors. Group tickets of 10 or more are available at £10 for adults and £5 for juniors. For more information and/or to purchase tickets go to

Both games are being streamed live on the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport NI website.

Last month Northern Ireland lost their first ever match in the UEFA Women’s Nations League – 3-0 to Republic of Ireland in Dublin – before bouncing back to defeat Albania Women 1-0 at home.

Hungary drew with Albania away in their opening fixture in the competition and then lost 4-0 at home to the Republic in their second game.
