Evans and Dallas included in Northern Ireland squad
Jonny Evans and Stuart Dallas return to the Northern Ireland squad for the World Cup qualifiers next month against Switzerland and Bulgaria.
Both players were named to Ian Baraclough’s squad last month but were not listed due to injuries and personal reasons respectively.
