Evans eyes Romania result

13 June 2015

Corry Evans is expected to start for Northern Ireland in tonight’s big Euro 2016 qualifier at home to Romania.

The Rovers midfielder played the full 90 minutes in the warm-up match with Qatar last month and will hope to earn his 29th cap in the top-of-the-table clash at Windsor Park this evening.

Having secured four wins from their opening five games, Northern Ireland sit just one point and one place behind Group F rivals Romania.

The only blemish on their near-perfect qualifying campaign came in the reverse fixture in Bucharest back in November, when Michael O'Neill's side slipped to a 2-0 defeat.

If Northern Ireland can reverse that result, they will leapfrog Romania into top spot, putting them in pole position to reach their first major tournament finals in 29 years.
