JOEL Cooper has a chance to make his senior Northern Ireland debut tonight after being named on the bench.

Ian Baraclough's side are in Oslo to face Norway in a UEFA Nations League tie.

It comes after the Oxford United winger was left out of the squads to face Bosnia-Herzegovina and Austria in the past week.

Northern Ireland called up 26 players for the triple-header, but could only name a matchday squad of 23.

The 24-year-old, who joined the U's in the summer, missed the EFL Trophy tie against Bristol Rovers and the Sky Bet League One defeat to Gillingham on Saturday while away on international duty.
