Paris: Northern Ireland's second highest goal scorer, Kyle Lafferty has sustained an injury during training at the Saint-Georges-de-Reneins here. However his injury is unlikely to prevent his participation in the debut game against Poland in the Euro football championship starting on Friday.

Lafferty on Tuesday suffered a sprain during the training session and had to hobble off the pitch, but chief coach Michael O'Neill informed the media later that the Norwich City player was fine.
"All fine, all good. It was precautionary to take him out of training," O'Neill said.
"After examination by the doctor, he feels good. It's a little twist, but on examination we don't expect any major issues at all," he added.
Lafferty, who scored seven goals during the qualifiers for his country, will probably be fit to play against Poland in the Euro 2016 Group C next Sunday in the city of Nice.
