Shane Ferguson

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Club Reporter

 

United youngster Shane Ferguson has been called-up to the Northern Ireland squad for their friendly against Finland next Wednesday (15th August).

The left-sided player, who can turn out at either full-back or on the wing, is part of a 23-man squad named by national boss Michael O'Neill for the fixture at Windsor Park, in Belfast.

Ferguson, aged 21, made his international bow back in June 2009, and will be hoping to win his fourth senior cap against Finland.

He is the ninth Newcastle player to be named for international duty this month, following the likes of captain Fabricio Coloccini, Papiss Cisse and Yohan Cabaye.
