Missing Players and team news:
Fellow Inter pair Stefano Sensi and Alessandro Bastoni have been subject to restrictions too, but all three can travel if they return a negative test ahead of the game. Meanwhile, further issues affecting the Azzurri’s midfield selection include an injury to versatile Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante. Andrea Belotti and Ciro Immobile are the favourites for the central striker’s role on Thursday, with in-form Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Chiesa potentially featuring out wide. For Northern Ireland, Jamal Lewis is a major doubt due to a groin injury and the Newcastle United full-back did not train with the rest of the squad on Tuesday. Manager Ian Baraclough is set to make a late decision on the defender’s fitness, but will be relieved to have experienced Leicester City centre-back Jonny Evans, who played in the FA Cup on Sunday, available – though the stalwart defender did not train on Tuesday either. The Green and White Army have already lost striker Conor Washington due to injury and winger Jordan Jones was forced to withdraw just before the squad was made public. Linfield forward Shayne Lavery has been called up and could feature at some stage, while uncapped Liverpool Under-23 goalkeeper Liam Hughes has also been added as back-up to first choice Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who has been short of first-team action at Burnley. Hearts striker Liam Boyce is not expected to join up with his team-mates until later in the camp, as he awaits the birth of his second child.
