They are available for The Shrimps’ game against Plymouth Argyle on Good Friday before reporting for duty on Saturday.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley said: “It doesn’t happen often and it’s nice.

“Luke’s been in our squad for quite a long time and Darren hasn’t had a club but he’s here now and played a couple of reserve team games.

“He’s been on standby but has been called up.

“It’s excellent to have two players going away on international duty, there’s a bit of kudos and we wish them well.”
