Trevor Carson has been called up by Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill for the coming international break.

The second break of the 2016/17 campaign in October sees Northern Ireland face San Marino and Germany in the 2018 World Cup qualifying games, and O’Neill’s side host San Marino in Belfast on October 8 before heading to Hanover to face Germany three days later.

Northern Ireland squad:

Goalkeepers:
Michael McGovern (Norwich), Alan Mannus (St Johnstone), Trevor Carson (Hartlepool).

Defenders:
Gareth McAuley, Jonny Evans (West Bromwich Albion), Craig Cathcart (Watford), Conor McLaughlin (Fleetwood), Lee Hodson (Rangers), Michael Smith (Peterborough), Tom Flanagan (Burton), Ryan McGivern (Shrewsbury Town).

Midfielders:
Steven Davis (Southampton), Niall McGinn (Aberdeen), Oliver Norwood (Brighton), Corry Evans (Blackburn), Jamie Ward (Nottingham Forest), Shane Ferguson (Millwall), Stuart Dallas (Leeds), Paddy McNair (Sunderland), Matthew Lund (Rochdale).

Forwards:
Kyle Lafferty (Norwich), Josh Magennis (Charlton), Conor Washington (QPR), Liam Boyce (Ross County).

Striker Will Grigg will miss the games due to a ‘family situation’ that O’Neill wouldn’t elaborate on, and he also includes four uncapped players in the overall squad.
