Corry set for Wales encounter

25 June 2016

Corry Evans will hope to retain his place in the Northern Ireland team for this afternoon's last 16 clash with Wales.

The two home nations go head-to-head in Paris for a place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.

Having been an unused substitute for Northern Ireland's opening match of the tournament - a 1-0 defeat to Poland - the Rovers midfielder started the final two group games and was outstanding as Michael O'Neill's men defeated Ukraine 2-0, before suffering a narrow 1-0 loss to World Champions Germany.

Those results ensured that Northern Ireland would finish third in Group C and booked today's mouth-watering match with Group B winner Wales, who topped the table ahead of England.  

The winners will face Hungary or Belgium in the last eight.
