Rory Hale has been called up as part of Noel Kings Republic Of Ireland’s U21 Squad making him number 5 on the list of International Players currently playing for Derry City FC’s first team.
The team will take on Norway as part of the UEFA 2019 Under-21 European Championships qualifying match with the game taking place in Marienlyst Stadion, Drammen, with kick-off at 7pm (6pm local time).
Fourth-placed Norway held Ireland to a 0-0 draw at Tallaght Stadium in October and will need to win on Tuesday to keep any qualification hopes alive whilst Ireland will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign.
Republic of Ireland Under-21 Head Coach Noel King said: “The squad is really looking forward to meeting up later in the week and starting our preparations for the trip to Norway.
“As the Norwegians proved in the game in October, they are a very good team who will provide us with a difficult test. The players have started the campaign brilliantly and to be in the position at the top of the table after four games is fantastic and a credit to them.
“Norway will be boosted by their 3-1 victory against Germany and nobody is in doubt about the enormity of the challenge we face but given the levels these lads have reached, nothing would surprise me from them.”
