Match Venue: Parc des Princes
Match Date: 21 June 2016
It has been 10 years since Northern Ireland and Germany met each other, and it was the Germans who had the victory in the said campaign. The biggest question now is will the same scenario occur?
The first timer in the competition is about to be challenge by the experience team that is aiming for the number one spot in the group stage that they are in. The Irish squad is looking forward into another win after keeping a clean sheet against Ukraine. West Bromwich player Gareth McAuley was considered as the man of the match.
Given the chance to enter the group stage of the tournament was already an achievement for Michael O’neill’s men. A successful finish is what they are trying to look out for, knowing the fact that they are in a group wherein all teams are tough.
Pure commitment, and a pure heart is what the Northern Ireland will keep in mind as they play they’re last match over the German side.
Joachim Low is disappointed with their goalless match against Poland which leads into a draw. A poor defence and attack have led their campaign into a 0-0 result which they don’t want if they are hoping to advance in the next level. Wrong choice of staring XI had contributed to that said event.
There might be a great chance that the German squad won’t end up number one in the Group C stage. If Low wants to have their last game in favored of them then he must ensure that he’ll gonna use the write combination of players in the field. Unnecessary changes didn’t help him secure a win over the Polish side.
High scoring chances will be in favored of the Germans, yet the Irish squad is looking forward to have the same performance as their rival have.
