Pools goalkeeper Trevor Carson has been included in Northern Ireland’s 25-man squad for their upcoming fixtures against Azerbaijan and Croatia.
Carson will link-up with his international team-mates after Sunday’s FA Cup game against Stamford but will miss Pools’ Sky Bet League Two game against Cheltenham Town next weekend.
Michael O’Neill’s side will host Azerbaijan in their latest World Cup qualifier at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park in Belfast on Friday 11th November.
They will then play a friendly on home soil against Croatia on Tuesday 15th November as Northern Ireland bring down the curtain on a memorable 2016.
Pools star Carson will once again be in the squad for the two games, battling against Norwich City’s Michael McGovern and St Johnstone’s Alan Mannus for the Number One spot.
