Rovers midfielder Corry Evans has been called up by Northern Ireland ahead of their friendly with South Korea.

Michael O’Neill has named the 27-year-old in his squad for the friendly on Saturday, March 24.

Evans, who has 47 caps for his country, hasn’t featured since controversially giving away a penalty in the World Cup play-off final defeat to Switzerland in November.

He was shown a yellow card in the process which saw him miss the second-leg as Northern Ireland were beaten 1-0 on aggregate over the two legs.

Evans came off the bench, and impressed, in Rovers’ win over Blackpool at the weekend, his 27th club appearance of the season, as well as featuring four times for his country.

He is the fourth Rovers player to be named in their respective national team's squad after Charlie Mulgrew (Scotland), Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams (Republic of Ireland) which leaves the game with Doncaster Rovers on March 24 in doubt.
