Corry and Charlie in action tonight

The experienced pairing of Evans and Mulgrew are set to play for Northern Ireland and Scotland respectively

9 September 2019

The experienced pair of Corry Evans and Charlie Mulgrew are both expected to play for their countries in crucial Euro 2020 Qualifiers this evening.

Corry, who skippered Northern Ireland in their friendly victory over Luxembourg at the weekend, will be aiming to add to his 54 caps by playing his part against Germany tonight.

The clash, which is due to be played at Windsor Park in Belfast, will see the top two in Group C go head to head.

The hosts know that a win will move them six points clear at the summit and continue their 100% record in Group C, having beaten both Belarus and Estonia at home and away so far.

Mulgrew, who is on a season-long loan at Wigan Athletic, is in the Scotland squad for their crunch home encounter with Roberto Martinez's Belgium side at Hampden Park.

The 33-year-old will be eager to add to his 42 caps for his country so far.

Steve Clarke’s side suffered a narrow defeat to Russia at Hampden Park on Friday and their chances of qualifying for the major tournament will be remote should they suffer defeat to Belgium, who finished third at the 2018 World Cup.

The Red Devils sit top Group I with five wins from five, whilst Scotland currently occupy fourth place with three defeats and two wins from their opening quintet of games.

Good luck, lads!
