Rovers midfielder Corry Evans has been named in the Northern Ireland squad for an upcoming friendly.

The 27-year-old has been included in a 24-man squad for the international challenge match against Korea Republic on Saturday March 24th.

The game at Windsor Park, which will be the first ever meeting between the two countries, is a warm-up match for the South Koreans, who have qualified for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

A regular for Michael O’Neill’s side, Evans will be hoping to earn his 45th cap for his country at the game in Belfast.  

Should Rovers have three or more players called up for international duty, then under EFL Policy, the club could request that the upcoming trip to Doncaster Rovers, scheduled for Saturday March 24th, be postponed.

So far, captain Charlie Mulgrew has been named in the Scotland squad for games against Costa Rica and Hungary, whilst fellow defenders Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams have been included in the Republic of Ireland’s provisional 30-man squad for a friendly against Turkey.
