According to an update by Leeds United’s official website, defender Stuart Dallas has been called up to Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland squad for the Euro 2020 Play-Off semi-final against Bosnia and Herzegovina – resulting in many supporters cheering the player.
Dallas, who has started 37 Championship games for the Whites this campaign, earning favour among supporters for making the second most tackles per game on average out of any player in the squad (WhoScored), is being recognised further for his contribution to Marcelo Bielsa’s promotion chasers.
So much so, that Northern Ireland boss O’Neill has opted to include him for their biggest game of the year so far – a crucial play-off semi-final clash against Bosnia and Herzegovina. The European Championships are just months away, with the Green and White army merely a few games from another major tournament appearance – potentially building upon their debut Euro outing back in 2016.
