Corry Evans will look to warm up for the forthcoming Euro 2016 finals by getting more game time for Northern Ireland this Saturday evening.

The Northern Irish are in Trnava for their final friendly match before the start of Euro 2016, taking on fellow qualifiers Slovakia.

Evans and co are in high spirits after topping their qualifying group, and having defeated Belarus 3-0 in Belfast last week, go into the last prepration match in great form.

Northern Ireland kick off their Euro 2016 campaign in eight days time on June 12th when they face Poland in Nice. They then travel to Lyon to take on Ukraine four days later.

They end the group stages at the Parc des Princes in Paris against Germany on June 21st.

The top two teams from each group, plus the four best third-placed teams, will progress through to the round of 16.

• Meanwhile Simeon Jackson played the final 20 minutes as Canada drew 1-1 with Azerbaijan in a friendly international in Austria on Friday.

Tesho Akindele fired the Canadians in front just before half-time, but a 57th minute penalty from Dimitrij Nazarov ensured the match ended all square.

Canada are back in action in Austria again on June 7th when they play Uzbekistan.
