The experienced Rovers duo of Corry Evans and Charlie Mulgrew are both expected to play a part for Northern Ireland and Scotland respectively, later tonight.

With the pair of countries playing in UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifiers this evening, Evans could be named in the starting XI for tonight's clash against Belarus.

The Borisov Arena will play host this evening for Evans and Northern Ireland, kick-off 7.45pm.

With Germany and the Netherlands also in their group, the Ulstermen face a difficult challenge to qualify for the Finals, which take place in June 2020.

Another three points this evening will continue Northern Ireland's 100% record in the group stages so far and boost their chances of qualifying.

Michael O'Neill's side have won their opening three group stage matches, and beat the same opponent on home turf back in March.

Histry could be made this evening though, as Northern Ireland have never won four games in a row at the start of a campaign and have yet to win back-to-back away qualifiers.

Elsewhere, Mulgrew's expected to play a part in Scotland's clash against Belgium in Brussels as Steve Clarke looks to continue his winning start in charge of the national team.

Clarke's side earned a late but valuable win against Cyprus at Hampden Park at the weekend in his first outing as boss.

But it'll be a tough test against the hosts, who are expected to include a galaxy of stars in their line up. The likes of new Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard, Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku are all expected to start.

It's an opportunity for three wins in a row for Scotland, who suffered a somewhat embarassing defeat to Kazakhstan in their opening game of the Qualifiers, but they have got back on track with good wins against San Marino and Cyprus.

Corry could earn cap number 53 for his country, whilst it'll be 41 and counting for Charlie should he run out tonight.

Good luck, lads!
