Doncaster Rovers defender Luke McCullough has been recalled into the Northern Ireland squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers against Greece and Finland.

McCullough was initially left out of Michael O'Neill's panel having been out of the Rovers team since August with a knee injury.

However, the 21 year old made a return to action on Saturday in his side's 2-1 win over Barnsley and with West Brom's Jonny Evans likely to be missing and club and country team mate Gareth McAuley struggling to make it, McCullough has been drafted in.

Northern Ireland can qualify for next summer's tournament in France if they beat Greece at the National Stadium on Thursday. Two draws from both games would be enough to make it to their first major tournament since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
