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

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

The A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn will play host this evening for Evans and Northern Ireland, kick-off 5pm.

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 both of their opening two group stage matches, and beat the same opponent on home turf back in March.

Elsewhere, Mulgrew's expected to play a part in Steve Clarke's first game as Scotland manager this evening.

Appointed last month, Clarke's maiden outing is a home clash against Cyprus at Hampden Park, kick-off 7.45pm.

It's an opportunity for back-to-back wins for Scotland, who suffered a somewhat embarassing defeat to Kazakhstan in their opening game of the Qualifiers, but did get back on track with a good 2-0 home victory over San Marino soon after.

Corry could earn cap number 53 for his country, whilst it'll be 40 and counting for Charlie should he run out in his home city tonight.

Good luck, lads!
