Evans' Euro exit

26 June 2016

Corry Evans' Euro 2016 adventure came to an end in unfortunate fashion as Northern Ireland lost 1-0 to Wales.

The Rovers midfielder played the full match in Paris as Gareth McAuley's own goal 15 minutes from time sent Chris Coleman's side through to the last eight.

It was cruel on Northern Ireland, who had been the better team throughout.

Despite the disappointment, Evans, who put in another tireless performance, will have been pleased to play such a prominent role at the tournament - starting three of Northern Ireland's four games.

The 25-year-old will now be given some extra time off before joining up with his Rovers team-mates for pre-season.
