Worthington names experimental squad
Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington has named five Irish League players in his squad for a two-match tour.
Colin Coates, Kevin Braniff, Robert Garrett, Jamie Mulgrew and Rory Patterson will all travel out to the USA and Chile.
Worthington's side face Turkey in New Britain, Connecticut on 26 May and then the FIFA World Cup™ finalists on 30 May.
Promising Manchester United midfielder Corry Evans, brother of Jonny, is also included along with two other talented youngsters, Michael Bryan of Watford and John Gorman of Wolves.
The bulk of Northern Ireland's senior squad are remaining at home. Only Stephen Craigan, Gareth McAuley, Warren Feeney and Andrew Little will make the trip.
Worthington is relying on two experienced goalkeepers in Michael McGovern of Active Nation Scottish Cup finalists Ross County and Alan Mannus, who plays for Shamrock Rovers.
