O’Neill confirms Northern Ireland Squad for upcoming Central America Tour

Northern Ireland's disappointing start to Nations League

It was announced yesterday that Michael O’Neills squad will travel to Central America to play two games at the end of the month.

They will play Panama on the 29th May and Costa Rica on the 3rd of June. Both Panama and Costa Rica are preparing for their World Cup campaign in Russia this Summer so the Green and White Army hope to give them stiff opposition in the run up to the tournament.

O’Neill has announced his 22-player squad, a very interesting mix of players from very experienced internationals like Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans right down novices including the NIFWA Player of the Year, Crusaders winger Gavin Whyte, Barnsley midfielder Cameron McGeehan, Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazzard who was on loan to Falkirk and also Bailey Peacock-Farrell, goalkeeper for Leeds United. It is clear to see O’Neill is nurturing break through talent and this will be a great test for the newly capped and previously uncapped players in the team.
