Jamal Lewis has returned to the Northern Ireland squad ahead of crucial Euro 2020 qualifiers against Holland and Germany.

Lewis, who has 11 caps, missed a 3-1 defeat in Holland and a 3-2 friendly win in the Czech Republic last month due to a minor knee injury. That has left Michael O'Neill's team third in Group C with four games to play.

That qualification push begins against Holland in Belfast on Saturday, November 16 and in Germany on Tuesday, November 19 (both 7.45pm kick-offs) - with the Irish three points behind both teams ahead of the international break.

Canaries keeper Michael McGovern retains his place in the squad, having won his 31st cap when he played all of the friendly win in Prague.

City striker Teemu Pukki, as expected, has also kept his place in the Finland squad. Pukki's goals have been a key part of his nation's campaign, with home victory over minnows Liechtenstein on Friday, November 15 to guarantee qualification.
