Luton Town duo Paddy McCourt and Sean Long have both received international call-ups this afternoon.

McCourt has been named in the Northern Ireland squad to face Latvia in a friendly at Windsor Park on Friday, November 13, meaning he will miss Hatters’ match against Barnet the following day.

Meanwhile, on-loan Reading defender Long is in the Republic of Ireland U21 squad for their UEFA U21 Championships Group Two match in Lithuania on Friday, November 13, plus a friendly against Norway in Waterford on Tuesday, November 17, also ruling him out of Town’s League Two clash against the Bees.
