Three points the aim for Northern Ireland

4 September 2015

Northern Ireland will look to further their Euro 2016 chances when they take on the Faroe Islands this evening.

Michael O'Neill's men are currently second in Group F - a point behind leaders Romania and two ahead of third-placed Hungary.

And with the Romanians facing Hungary tonight in Budapest, the match against the Faroes in Torshavn tonight takes on a greater significance.

Rovers midfielder Corry Evans is part of the 26-man squad that has travelled to the north Atlantic knowing a win this evening will give them an excellent chance of qualifying for the finals in France next summer.

Should Evans feature it will be his 30th cap for his country.

Following the match against the Faroe Islands, Northern Ireland will return to Belfast to prepare to face Hungary at Windsor Park on Monday 7th September.

Also on international duty for his country today is Darragh Lenihan.

The versatile Rover is with the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad for an international friendly match against the Qatar Olympic team.

The match, which takes place at Gigg Lane, Bury, is part of preparation for Tuesday's UEFA U21 Championship clash with Andorra.
