Jasper Johns has become the third Sheffield United player to receive an international call-up this week after being named in the Northern Ireland under-19 squad which faces Austria next month.

The match, which takes place in Vienna on Wednesday 11 September, kicks-off at 6pm.

George Long (England under-21) and Sean McGinty (Republic of Ireland under-21) are already scheduled to take part in the latest round of European Championship qualifiers.

England, now coached by Gareth Southgate, have been placed in Group One with Lithuania, Finland, Wales, Moldova and San Marino.

The Republic of Ireland join Montenegro, Romania, the Faroe Islands and Germany in Group Six.

Johns, a summer signing from Everton, made his United debut when Colchester visited Bramall Lane 11 days ago.
