Star man Jonny Evans will return to the heart of Northern Ireland's defence to tackle Norway's lethal strike force of Erling Haaland and Josh King at Windsor Park tomorrow night.

The Leicester City ace (below) missed the trip to Bucharest due to a 'personal issue'. But Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough confirmed 32-year-old Evans trained yesterday and will line out against the Norwegians.

Baraclough admitted: "Jonny Evans has trained, so he'll certainly get some game time on Monday.

"I can't guarantee 90 minutes but that will give everyone a boost."
