Cliftonville goalkeeper Conor Devlin has been added to the Northern Ireland squad for their World Cup qualifying double header against Portugal and Luxembourg.

Manager Michael O'Neill included only two goalkeepers in his initial squad - Roy Carroll and Michael McGovern - but Devlin has been training with the team in Belfast this week and has been formally added to the side ahead of Friday night's clash with Portugal.

He will also travel to Luxembourg on Sunday.

O'Neill used goalkeeping coach Maik Taylor on the bench for last month's win over Russia, but has opted to hand Devlin his first senior call-up this time.
