Northern Ireland squad announced

Michael O'Neill names 23 for Euros

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has announced his 23-man squad for the European Championships.

O'Neill had named a 28-man squad for the warm-up game against Belarus last night which his side won 3-0, but has now reduced that to 23 as Northern Ireland prepare for their first major championship finals since the World Cup in Mexico in 1986.

The unlucky five to be omitted are Liam Boyce, Daniel Lafferty, Billy McKay, Michael Smith and Ben Reeves which means that there is a place for Wigan striker Will Grigg.

Grigg scored 25 goals for the League One champions this season and gets the nod ahead of Boyce who will feel unlucky to have missed out after netting 20 times for Ross County.

Lee Hodson was preferred to Smith at right-back, while Lafferty and Reeves have paid the price for not having featured oftern enough for their clubs this season.

Full squad: Carroll, McGovern, Mannus; J Evans, McAuley, Cathcart, McLaughlin, Ferguson, Hodson, McCullough, Hughes. Dallas, Baird, Ward, Davis, Norwood, C Evans, McGinn, McNair, Lafferty, Washington, Magennis, Grigg.
