Evans' Euro hopes

16 June 2016

Corry Evans will be eager for his first taste of Euro 2016 action when Northern Ireland take on Ukraine later this Thursday.

The Rovers midfielder was an unused substitute as the Northern Irish lost their first match of the tournament by a single goal against Poland last Sunday.

Boss Michael O'Neill may choose to change his squad after the opening day loss, and that could mean Evans coming into consideration for the match in Lyon.

Northern Ireland need a victory to boost their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition, but they come up against a Ukraine side that also tasted defeat in their first match as they went down 2-0 to Germany.

The pair sit at the bottom of Group C, but with Poland and Germany facing each other in the evening game, the opportunity to move level on points is well within their grasp.
