Evans' younger brother Corry is on United's B list for the group stages - and growing in stature. The 20-year-old midfielder got the winner for Northern Ireland in their victory against Slovenia in a Euro 2012 qualifier.
Jonny, who was in the stand because of a groin injury, said: "When we scored I just jumped up celebrating. I didn't know who scored. Then I realised it was Corry and I was telling everyone.
"The main thing for Corry is probably to get out on loan. I think being an international will raise his profile. He did very well when he came on and the management were really impressed with him."
