Northern Ireland have added Brentford winger Stuart Dallas to the preliminary squad for their opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Hungary.

The 23-year-old, who earned his only previous cap against Wales in a much-depleted Carling Nations Cup side three years ago, has been rewarded for a strong start to the season with the Bees.

Dallas has scored three times in seven appearances and will be part of a 27-man training group that manager Michael O'Neill will cut to 23 before leaving for Budapest and Sunday's Group F clash.
