Man Utd defender Evans facing Northern Ireland dilemma

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans faces a club v country issue over Northern Ireland's looming date with Albania.

Northern Ireland boss Nigel Worthington this week will have talks with several players including Manchester United defender Evans, normally a certain Northern Ireland starter.

Worthington said: "He is involved in the Carling Cup Final with Aston Villa on the Sunday, 24 hours before our departure to Albania and then has another club fixture scheduled on the following Saturday.

"I know he is anxious to play for his country, is always filled with pride when that happens but we will have to wait and see how things develop.

"He is dedicated to the national squad and is anxious not to miss a cap."
