INTERNATIONALS: McAuley, Evans & Chester feature on Monday

Victory for Northern Ireland while Wales suffer defeat

JONNY Evans and Gareth McAuley both helped Northern Ireland to a 1-0 victory over Slovenia in Belfast on Monday night.

McAuley was substituted at half-time at Windsor Park while Evans completed the 90 minutes.

Conor Washington’s 42nd minute strike was enough to secure a narrow win for Michael O’Neill’s men, who have now gone a record ten games unbeaten.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment for fellow Albion defender James Chester.

He played 90 minutes for Wales as they suffered a 1-0 defeat in Ukraine – Andriy Yarmolenko scoring the only goal of the game in the first-half.
