It comes as Michael O'Neill's side face a player shortage in the wake of the 4-2 defeat to Portugal at Windsor Park - which saw Chris Brunt and Kyle Lafferty sent off.
They will now miss Tuesday's game, while O'Neill is also sweating on the fitness of Jamie Ward and Shane Ferguson who had to be substituted.
Niall McGinn is also nursing an injury.
A statement from the Irish Football Association on Sunday said: "Dean Shiels has been called up to the Northern Ireland squad for the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg."
