Rovers duo Corry Evans and Jayson Leutwiler will both be in international action this afternoon, joining Charlie Mulgrew, Derrick Williams and Darragh Lenihan in our international quintet.

Whilst the latter three were with their countries for games yesterday, midfielder Evans and goalkeeper Leutwiler will be involved in clashes against South Korea and New Zealand.

Corry's Northern Ireland will tackle a South Korean squad which will feature Premier League pair Heung Min Son of Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea's Ki Sung Yeung.

The game takes place at Windsor Park in Belfast on Saturday, kick-off 2pm and Corry will be hoping to play again with his brother Jonny, who is expected to line up at the heard of Michael O'Neill's defence.

Over in Spain, Jayson and his Canada team-mates will come face to face with New Zealand an hour on from Corry's clash, with the game against the Kiwis taking place at 3pm in Murcia.

Leutwiler is part of British coach John Herdman's first squad ahead of his maiden outing as coach of the men's team having previously overseen the Canada national ladies side.

Leutwiler is one of only two British-based players in the squad - the other being Liam Millar, who is on the books at Liverpool.

Opponents New Zealand are likely to go with a youthful and inexperienced team, with nine of the 24-man squad set to earn their first cap.

Good luck to both Corry and Jayson!
