O'Neill hoping to field strong squad

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says he hopes to have his strongest possible squad available for the international friendly against Finland on August 15 at Windsor Park.

The August friendly date has traditionally been a problem fixture for international managers as players have just started the new season with their clubs.

The last time Northern Ireland played Finland was in a friendly in 2006, when Healy and Lafferty gave them a 2-1 victory in Helsinki.
