Two Rovers regulars are set to do battle this evening in Dublin as the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland take on each other in a friendly.

Darragh Lenihan will hope to line up at the heart of the hosts' defence, whilst Corry Evans will be eager to mark cap number 51 with a victory for the visitors.

Following the game, Northern Ireland will be back in Belfast for a match with Austria on Sunday in the UEFA Nations League.

For Lenihan, it could be his second cap, having made his debut off the bench against the United States in the summer.

After the game against Northern Ireland, the Republic will head to Denmark for a UEFA Nations League encounter, which takes place on Monday evening.

This will be the first meeting between the two since 2011, when Ireland earned a 5-0 victory.

Fellow international pair Derrick Williams and Charlie Mulgrew have since pulled out of the Ireland and Scotland squads respectively due to injury.

Good luck, lads!
