Northern Ireland advance

Northern Ireland has seriously struggled in the 2016 Euro’s as they lost their opening match of the tournament after losing against Poland and 9 days later sustaining another loss against Germany.

From the 3 opening matches of the competition that they have played so far, only 1 victory has been secured which was when facing off with Ukraine but it’s enough for them to progress into the next rounds of the 2016 Euro’s.

Northern Ireland is competing in Group C along with: Ukraine, Poland and Germany. Fortunately for the Irish outfit, Ukraine are going through a disastrous campaign and it allows the team of Michael O’Neill to get past the group stages.

Corry Evans gets a call-up for the Northern Ireland squad

Northern Ireland has 2 friendly matches scheduled to take place on May 27 and June 4 as the team of Martin O’Neil has to play against Belarus and Slovakia respectively.


Corry Evans of Blackburn Rovers is a midfielder who has played for the Northern Irish squad a few years ago but it’s been some time since he has been able to represent his national side and the 25 year old was called up for a chance to perform in these upcoming friendly encounters.

EVANS PROMISES TO WORK FOR COYLE

Corry Evans who is away on international duty as Northern Ireland prepare for the European Championships says he is prepared to work with the new coach. The player complained bitterly recently as he wondered how long it would take the club to appoint a new manager, especially as they need to start preparations for life after the summer.

Evans who is 25 years of age is part of the Northern Ireland team set to face Slovakia in a final warm-up match on Saturday before heading to France for the tournament. Team mate Shane Duffy joined him as he was also named in the Ireland squad.

Corry Evans returns to the Blackburn team

Corry Evans returns to the Blackburn team that drew with Nottingham Forest

Corry Evans returned to Blackburn team that earned a draw at the City Ground. The match ended 1-1 with both teams finding it difficult to score the winning goal.

The Blackburn Rovers manager, Paul Lambert made several changes to the team of which was the return of Corry Evans. Connor Mahoney made his full debut for Blackburn Rovers, and Elliot, Ward, Lowe, and Akpan were the other players that were brought into the team.

The manager opted for a 4-1-4-1 formation in an attempt to strengthen his midfield. Blackburn started the game quite nervously and gave the ball away needlessly in the opening minutes. However, they improved quickly and began to control the game. They had their first occasion with Marshall, who shot wide of the target after drifting inside from the left.

Paul Lambert not sure about Plans for the Club

Paul Lambert does not have the idea at this point of time whether the plans that he has for the progression of the club would get a go-ahead from the hierarchy.

The boss reckons the picture would be clear once he gets a reply on the blueprint that he has sent to the board.

According to Lambert, what he has figured out in his 3-month Blackburn stint is that everyone is willing for the club to progress and not just stand at the same point and it would be brilliant if the owners have the same opinion too and they give him a free hand for the execution of the plans.

Lambert, since the time of his appointment, has maintained that transfer business in the coming summer would be absolutely pivotal and it’s probably in that regard that he wants a bit of freedom from the owners.

EPIC FIGHTBACK BY SOUTHAMPTON

Southampton hosted Liverpool on March 20 and despite falling behind 2-0 in the first half, the team of Ronald Koeman managed to make an outstanding comeback as the home team scored 3 goals in the 2nd half which was just enough for Southampton to secure the victory and snatch all 3 points.

Ronald Koeman reached the 53 year old mark on May 21st and the 3-2 victory over Liverpool was played only 1 day before.

Hull City have been rather quiet in the summer transfer window

Hull City have been rather quiet in the summer transfer window so far and this might leave the club facing a shortage of players according to manager Steve Bruce.

Some couple of high-profile departures follow with the lack of replacements mean that Bruce is already fighting to keep the squad in the strongest possible shape. The Championship is one of the unforgiving leagues in all of Europe and it will take a lot of strength in order to get out of this division. Due to various budget cuts by the club owner, Bruce has not been able to strengthen the team as he would like to.

The former Hull City player is seen as an integral part of the team and without him Blackburn would have struggled to get a result.

After missing much of the pre-season due to injuries, Evans was welcomed back to the team in the recent Capital One Cup game against Shrewsbury Town.
