Corry Evans: Northern Ireland call

Evans had been left out of the original squad after suffering a quad injury during Hull's pre-match warm-up against Crystal Palace earlier this month.

However, he has now been added to Michael O'Neill's party after passing a fitness test.

Northern Ireland's game against Russia was called off due to snow on Friday and then again on Saturday, meaning they need a result on Tuesday to salvage anything from what had been seen as an important double header at home.

Evans adds to O'Neill's midfield options in the absence of Chris Baird, who would have been suspended against Russia before coming into contention against Israel.
