McAuley relishing Northern Ireland return

Northern Ireland defender Gareth McAuley is eager for a return to international action in Wednesday's friendly against Cyprus.

The West Brom defender missed Northern Ireland's last two games but is expected to feature in the Nicosia game.

Meanwhile, the Irish FA said there were no security concerns over the match following the bombing of a referee's car on the island.
