Paterson and Norwood in Northern Ireland squad
Town duo Martin Paterson and Oliver Norwood have received call-ups to Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland squad.
The pair impressed during their last outings for their country and are likely to be involved when Northern Ireland take on Portugal in a World Cup Qualifier at Windsor Park on 6 September, 7.45pm.
Northern Ireland will then travel overseas to take on Luxembourg in the Stade Josy Barthel stadium; kick-off 8.15pm.
Paterson scored the only goal of the game in Northern Ireland’s last match against Russia earlier this month; the goal secured the Irish their first win of the qualifiers.
Midfielder Norwood has made ten appearances for Northern Ireland and is yet to score whereas Paterson has two goals to his name from 16 appearances.
