Northern Ireland manager Alfie Wylie has named a 20-strong squad for the World Cup qualifier against Slovakia next week, reports irishfa.com.

After losing out to Norway (away) and Republic of Ireland (home) in the first two games of their World Cup qualifying campaign, the Irish will be aiming to put points on the board when they take on the Slovakians in Zilina next Tuesday (28 November).

Slovakia have also failed to register a point in Qualifying Group 3 to date, so something will have to give at Stadion MSK Zilina (16.30 GMT start). They have also been beaten by both Norway and the Republic. The other team in the group are top seeds Netherlands.

Northern Ireland and Slovakia last met in the Istria Cup in Croatia back in March when the game ended 0-0.
