Millwall and Charlton players selected for Northern Ireland’s latest World Cup qualifiers

Daniel Ballard, George Saville and Conor Washington have been named in Northern Ireland’s squad for two 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Manager Ian Baraclough is preparing for away matches at Switzerland and Bulgaria at the start of next month.

Arsenal centre-back Ballard, on a season-long loan at Millwall from Arsenal, has been capped eight times since his debut in September 2020.

Lions’ box-to-box midfielder Saville has scored once in nine Championship outings this season since sealing a return to SE16 from Middlesbrough.

Ireland are third in Group C.
