Sunderland right-back Conor McLaughlin has played for Northern Ireland at virtually all the levels starting from the u-16 team. He made nine appearances for the Northern Ireland u-16 team before playing the same number of matches for the u-17 side.



Conor McLaughlin scored just one goal for his country during his time in the youth teams and that was at the u-19 level. The former Preston North End, Milwall and Fleetwood Town defender scored one goal in 14 games for the Northern Ireland u-19 team. Conor McLaughlin then failed to find the back of the net in seven games for the u-21 side.

Sunderland player Conor McLaughlin received an invitation to the senior team in October 2011. The 29-year-old right-sided defender made his debut for his country in the competitive match against the Italians.

Conor McLaughlin was not fortunate on his first game for the Northern Ireland senior team after he ended up on the losing side. He played a prominent role as his Northern Ireland side were beaten 3-0 by Italy.

Ex-Shrewbury Town player Conor McLaughlin was part of the Northern Ireland squad that made a return to a major competition after several decades at the 2016 edition of the European Championships in France. He was part of the 23-man squad to the tournament won by Portugal at the expense of the host nation.

Portugal won the first major title in their history at senior level at Euro 2016 by beating favourites and hosts France. Substitute striker Eder scored the only goal in extra time to give Portugal a 1-0 victory over the French team.
