About UEFA Euro 2016
The 2016 UEFA European Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA Euro 2016 or simply Euro 2016, will be the 15th edition of the UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men’s football championship of Europe organized by UEFA.Northern Ireland face their biggest test yet at Euro 2016 with Germany standing between them and a place in the knockout stages.Michael O’Neill’s side are guaranteed a third-placed finish in Group C after beating Ukraine, and would secure themselves a spot in the last 16 should they beat Joachim Low’s world champions.
The 2014 World Cup winners struggled in a goalless draw against Poland last time around, and Die Nationalmannschaft will be eager to make amends on Tuesday night.
O’Neill claims he would have been hailed as a ‘magician’ had he been Jose Mourinho or Roy Hodgson after making five changes to his side to secure the win against Ukraine, but he’ll need everything within his powers to mastermind a win against the likes of Mesut Ozil and Manuel Neuer.
All Germany need is a draw on Tuesday to qualify, and could even top the group with a point if Poland fail to beat Ukraine.
Joachim Low’s side are not out of the woods yet – they will finish second if they draw and Poland win, and could even slip to third if they lose to Northern Ireland.Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland side are guaranteed at least a third-placed finish in Group B, but must beat Germany to climb higher than that.A shock win against Low’s world champions would earn them top spot if Poland also fail to beat rock-bottom Ukraine, who are already going home.
Northern Ireland beat Germany twice during qualifying for the 1984 finals
They also played out a 2-2 draw in the group stage at the 1958 World Cup
Nevertheless, Germany’s competitive record against their Group C rivals is W5 D2 L2
