Shane Ferguson has been called into former Newcastle midfielder Michael O'Neill's first Northern Ireland squad for the upcoming friendly against Norway.

Having pledged his international future to the Ulstermen, the Magpies man has been named in the 24-man party for the match at Windsor Park on Wednesday, 29th February.

He already has one full cap, having appeared as a substitute in a friendly against Italy in July 2009.

The Derry-born 20-year-old has made two Barclays Premier League appearances this term.
