Doherty thrilled by surprise NI call-up
- From the section Football
Derry City goalkeeper Gerard Doherty says his call-up to the Northern Ireland squad was a "bit of a shock".
Uncapped Doherty, who represented the Republic of Ireland at youth level, replaces Olympiakos keeper Roy Carroll who has pulled out with a back injury.
"Training has been going quite well in pre-season. I feel quite sharp and I've no doubt, I'll give a good account of myself," said Doherty, 31.
