Hibs pair get call-up

Hibs defenders James McPake and Ryan McGivern have both been called up to the Northern Ireland squad.

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill has revealed that he has called up the defensive duo, due to a raft of injury call-offs.

The Irish play Turkey in a friendly in Adnan on Friday night, and have lost a number of players to injury.

"We're calling in James McPake and Ryan McGivern," O'Neill said.

"We got late notice of Jamie Ward, which was a bit disappointing. Shane Ferguson has an illness. We were only notified of that this morning so we'll monitor him over the next 12, 24 hours with the possibility of bringing him out on Wednesday."

Well done to both players.
