Linfield hero Andy Waterworth will choose country over club should the Uefa Under-19 European Championship qualifiers go ahead next month.

Alongside former international stars Roy Carroll and Gareth McAuley, Waterworth, likely to be a key figure in tonight's Big Two league game against Glentoran at Windsor Park, was named in new Northern Ireland Under-17 and 19 manager Gerard Lyttle's backroom team at the weekend, providing the 34-year-old striker with a dilemma early in his coaching role.
