Lewis Thompson has been called into the Northern Ireland Under-21s squad for a pair of upcoming Euro 2021 Under-21s Qualifiers.

Thompson could play a part in the Green and White Army's games against Malta and Finland at the beginning of next month.

The 19-year-old represented England at Under-16s level, before switching allegiances to the Ulstermen.

They will be the first games played of the tournament, with Northern Ireland in Group H, alongside Denmark, Romania, Ukraine, Malta and Finland.

The first test sees Malta head to Ballymena on Friday 6th September, kick-off 7.30pm, before Thompson and the squad head to Finland four days later to tackle Finland at the Raatti Stadium, kick-off 5pm GMT.

Good luck, Lewis!
