Corry Evans

Corry Evans (born 30 July 1990) is a Northern Irish footballer who plays as a midfielder or centre back for Manchester United. A Northern Ireland under-21 and senior international, he came through the United youth academy, like his older brother, first team centre back Jonny Evans. Evans is capable of operating in the centre of midfield or defense but was used mostly as a centre back during the 2008-09 season.

Evans began his international football career as a schoolboy international, playing for the Northern Ireland under-16 side; he scored one goal in three appearances for the team. In 2007, he progressed to the Under-17 side, playing in five fixtures in the space of two months. However, the team went winless in those five matches, losing three and drawing the other two.

By the end of 2007, Evans had joined the Under-19 team, but they were just as unsuccessful as the Under-17s, losing four and winning just one of the six matches that Evans played in between October 2007 and October 2008. He made his debut for the Under-21 side on 19 August 2008, but he was substituted after 72 minutes of the 1–0 defeat to Poland. He has since made four more appearances for the Under-21s.


Evans received his first call-up to the Northern Ireland senior team on 20 May 2009; he was named in a 19-man squad that contained nine other uncapped players for the match against Italy in Pisa on 6 June 2009. He made his debut in that very game, playing 78 minutes of the 3–0 defeat before being replaced by Shane Ferguson
