Key midfielder Corry Evans says he is itching to continue his fine form for club and country, with the 28-year-old set to represent Northern Ireland this weeken

The Rovers number 29 has been included in Michael O'Neill's squad for the clashes against Bosnia & Herzegovina in the UEFA Nations League and then Israel in a friendly.

Both games will be played in Belfast, with Bosnia visiting the Northern Ireland capital on Saturday prior to Israel's trip three days later.

A regular for O’Neill’s side, Evans will be hoping to earn his 48th and 49th caps for his country over that week and is eager to continue to keep his place in the team.

"I'm probably one of the more senior players in the squad. I'm coming close to 50 caps now - I think I'm on 47 - and hopefully I can reach the 50 mark sooner rather than later," Corry said.

"I really enjoy my time going away and seeing a lot of faces who I've grown up with throughout the years.

"We've been on a high for the last three or four years with Northern Ireland and Windsor Park is a good place to go and play at the moment."

Corry will return to training following the game against Israel in preparation for Aston Villa's visit to Ewood Park on Saturday 15th September.

Good luck, Corry!
