Qatar test for Corry

31 May 2015

Corry Evans and his Northern Ireland team-mates warm up for their forthcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Romania with a friendly match against Qatar later today.

Ahead of the top-two shootout next month, the Northern Irish have a match against the 2022 World Cup hosts at Crewe's Alexandra Stadium this Sunday at 5.00pm.

Following the game against Qatar, Northern Ireland have a behind closed doors friendly against the Republic of Ireland at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin on Thursday 4th June, before their big Group F clash against Romania on June 13th.

After four wins from their opening five games, Northern Ireland sit second behind next month's opponents, their only loss coming against the Romanians in Bucharest back in November when they slipped to a 2-0 loss.

If the Northern Irish can reverse that result at Windsor Park, they'll leapfrog Romania at the top of their group to put them in pole position to reach their first major tournament in 29 years.
