Accrington striker James Gray has been called up to the Northern Ireland squad ahead of friendlies against Uruguay and Chile.
Gray is a regular for the Under-21s and due to a number of withdrawals has now been promoted to the senior squad for the games on Friday May 30 and Wednesday June 4 respectively.
He told Stanley's official website: "To be honest I thought it was a wind up! I'm just absolutely made up to be in the squad and travel. I'm speechless."
The former Middlesbrough youngster has the chance to emulate his father, Phil Gray, who represented Northern Ireland 26 times, scoring 6 goals.
Gray, 21, attributes his selection to his form at the tail-end of the season as he scored three goals in the final two games.
He added: "I think that was a major part, getting into a bit of scoring form and getting rewarded."
