Michael O'Neill has named an 18-man Northern Ireland squad for a week-long training camp later this month.

Under-19's keeper, Conor Hazard, is included along with Linfield veteran Roy Carroll.

Adam Thompson from Southend makes a return after winning two caps in 2011.

The players meet in ten days ahead of a New Zealand friendly on June 2nd - and a World Cup qualifier with Azerbaijan eight days later.

Players who still have club matches remaining this season were not considered and the full squad for the matches will meet up on Monday 29 May.

Under-21 players Shay McCartan, Callum Camps and Conor Mitchell are included.
Doncaster Rovers defender Luke McCullough is also back in the international set-up for the first time since Euro 2016.
