Northern Ireland have called up Port Vale forward Andrew Little for Friday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Estonia and the clash with Italy four days later.

Little, who is playing for the npower League Two side on loan from Rangers, is the second player to be added to Nigel Worthington's squad as injury cover after Preston's Conor McLaughlin was summoned on Monday.

News of the versatile 22-year-old's call-up was announced on Vale's official website and confirmed by a posting on the player's Twitter feed which read: "Just been called into the Northern Ireland squad for the Euro qualifiers. En route to Manchester Airport now for flight to Belfast. Buzzing!"
