Euro quest for Rovers duo

7 September 2015

Corry Evans' Northern Ireland could could reach the Euro 2016 finals this evening with a win against Hungary.

Friday's 3-1 victory over Faroe Islands means Northern Ireland will qualify for their first major tournament since the Mexico World Cup in 1986 if they can overcome their opponents in Belfast tonight.

Evans was an unused substitute for the win in Torshavn, but should he feature at Windsor Park it will be his 30th cap for his country.

With the top two from the group going through, Northern Ireland are four points clear of third placed Hungary so victory over the Magyars would clinch a place in next summer's tournament in France.

At Hampden, Scotland will be looking to get their qualification quest back on track but face group leaders Germany this evening.

The 1-0 loss to Georgia on Friday night dented the Scots' chances of reaching the finals of Euro 2016 as they slipped to fourth place, so they'll be eager for a positive result in Glasgow.

Grant Hanley could return to the starting line-up after featuring as a second half substitute in Tbilisi.
