Ross county striker set to return to the side after missing out on Euros

With Michael O'Neill set to name his opening World Cup squad on Wednesday, the Ross County forward Liam Boyce is expected to be a part of it.

Boyce had a fine first half to the season in Scotland last year, however he was edged out for a place in the Euros by Wigan striker Will Grigg after Grigg 'caught fire' and scored 20 goals for his club since January.

The opening World Cup qualifier is against Croatia in Prague.  Among those that will be included, is West Brom defender Gareth McAuley (36) who decided to extend his international career.
