Worthington hails Man Utd wonderkid

The 19-year-old helped the under-21 side defeat San Marino on Tuesday, but was introduced at the break on Wednesday.

Worthington said: “It was a good honest performance in the second half, more like Northern Ireland

“The reason that was the case was young Corry Evans. He came on in midfield and had energy. He wanted the ball and passed well.

“He was neat and tidy. These are the simple things that can help change games.

“I have a lot of time for Corry. I have worked with him the last two and a half years. I have watched him closely and that was a typical Corry Evans performance.

“I must admit it was refreshing to have him here and see what he has achieved tonight.”
