Dons interest in NI friendly

27 May 2016

MK Dons could have two players involved in international action this evening, when Northern Ireland take on Belarus in a Euro 2016 warm-up match.

Lee Hodson and Ben Reeves have spent the past week with the Green and White Army and they’ll be hoping to feature in tonight’s friendly, which takes place in Belfast – kick-off is at 7.45pm.

The game will provide boss Michael O’Neill with one final chance to look over his squad before he has to name a 23-man travelling party for next month’s Championships – that announcement will be made on Saturday.

Northern Ireland, whose squad also includes former Dons striker Will Grigg, will play a further friendly against Slovakia next month ahead of their first major tournament in 30 years.

They will compete in Group C at Euro 2016, alongside Germany, Poland and Ukraine – their first match, against Poland, is set for Sunday 12th June.

Tonight’s match will be shown live on BBC Two NI (Sky channel 992) from 7.45pm.
