Fleetwood Town can confirm defender Carl Johnston and goalkeeper Stephen McMullan have been called up to the Northern Ireland Under-21s squad ahead of their match against England.
Both players, who have featured in the first team this season, and have played four games already this campaign for their national side, will join up with manager Tommy Wright and their teammates next week as they prepare for an important EURO Qualifier against the Three Lions.
The Under-21s are due to face the Group F top seeds at Goodison Park in Liverpool on Tuesday 21 November (7:45pm kick-off). Northern Ireland's Under-21s have three points from their opening four fixtures, following a 1-0 win over Azerbaijan in Baku, and defeats against Luxembourg, Serbia and Ukraine.
McMullan featured for Town on Tuesday nught in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy game against Leicester City Under-21s and kept a clean sheet, making crucial saves at key moments in the game. Johnston on the other hand has missed the last few games due to injury, but has been back on the grass this week.
Congrats on the call-ups and good luck lads!
