Watford defender Craig Cathcart has been called up for Northern Ireland's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Estonia and Belarus.

The 30-year-old has represented his country 41 times at senior level, scoring twice, and will join the squad for next week's games.

Roberto Pereyra and Daryl Janmaat have also been recently called up to represent their respective nations.

Although Cathcart did not start Watford's last game against Manchester City, Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has told him and the rest of the squad to be ready to play.

He said: "Whoever goes in, whether they're first choice for their club or not, they'll have to deal with being first-choice for us."

"I think there's 15 or 16 players in that 27 that didn't start for their clubs at the weekend so that's always a concern."
