Goalkeeper Conor Mitchell and right back Cameron Dummigan have received calls from Northern Ireland and will be off to Holland where they have been grouped with the host country, Italy and Norway for a place in the finals to be held in May in Slovakia.

Northern Ireland kick off their games against Holland on Thursday 21st March at Sportpark Parkzicht at Uden, kicking off at 7 p.m. local time.

Two days later, at the same venue, they face Norway (2 p.m. kick off) before bringing their games to an end on Wednesday 27th March. Italy are their last opponents and this game will be played at Sportpark 'In de Bandert' at Echt.

Both Mitchell and Dummigan featured in all three games in Northern Ireland's successful qualifying round last October in Estonia.

On that occasion they beat Wales 4-0, drew 1-1 against Estonia before losing 3-2 against an England side that included Chelsea's Alex Kiwomya, son of former Burnley loan player Andy.
