31st October 2017

Kyle Lafferty and Aaron Hughes named in Northern Ireland squad for Switzerland double header.

Aaron Hughes and Kyle Lafferty have been named in Northern Ireland’s World Cup Play-Off squad.

The duo will be part of Michael O’Neill’s 27-man squad for the winner takes all double-header against Switzerland next month.

Northern Ireland host Switzerland at Windsor Park on Thursday, November 9th before travelling to Basel three days later for the return leg.

Hughes can break the record for the most capped British defender of all time with an appearance in either game. He won his 108th cap in the 2-0 win over Czech Republic last month, equaling England legend Bobby Moore’s achievement.

Lafferty will be hoping to add to his 66 caps, which have seen him bag 20 goals.
