Corry: Qualification is within our grasp

8 October 2015

Northern Ireland are out to make history this Thursday evening when they take on Greece in their penultimate Euro 2016 qualifier.

Sitting top of Group F, a point ahead of Romania, and more importantly, four ahead of third placed Hungary, they know a win against the Greeks at Windsor Park will see them reach next summer's finals in France.

Part of the 26-man squad, Corry Evans is expected to start tonight's match and he hopes they can do the country proud in Belfast as they look to reach their first major finals since the World Cup in 1986.

"We've a chance to make history for our country and it will be great to be a part of that," said the Rovers midfielder.

"It is within our grasp now, we are fully focused on and hopefully we can put it to bed. But if not, then it will go down to the last game and it is one we are all fully prepared for.

"The whole country is buzzing at the minute, they support us ever so well, they come in their thousands.

"If we do actually qualify then half the country will be there so hopefully we can make them proud."

Northern Ireland's final qualifier is this Sunday when they travel to Helsinki to take on Finland.
