Rovers midfielder Corry Evans has been included in the Northern Ireland squad ahead of their upcoming World Cup play-off matches in November.

Michael O'Neill's side will play Switzerland in the knockout round as they aim to qualify for a first finals since 1986.

Evans and Northern Ireland will be home for the first leg on November 9th, with the away leg in Basel three days later.

Northern Ireland finished second behind world champions Germany in Group C, while Switzerland lost to Portugal in their final group game to drop into the play-offs.

Meanwhile, Rovers captain Charlie Mulgrew has been called up by Scotland ahead of their friendly against Holland in Aberdeen on November 9th.
