The Northern Ireland manager, Nigel Worthington, has called up the Manchester United midfielder Oliver Norwood for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Estonia and Italy following a handful of injuries that include captain Aaron Hughes, Jonny Evans, Jamie Ward and Josh McQuoid.

Midfielder Norwood is a product of the United youth system and, while he has yet to feature for the first team, he is a regular on loan at League One Scunthorpe. The 20-year-old is one of the most promising players in the Under-21 set-up and has played four times for the full side.
