Northern Ireland 1 Germany 3

Northern Ireland 1 Germany 3

Michael on the bench is sort of saying - do I go for it or do I not because the calibre of player Germany have - they can rip you apart at any time.

Left-back Chris Brunt could not cope with Kimmich's raiding runs alone and only got protection when Stuart Dallas was brought on for the second half.

Sebastian Rudy and Sandro Wagner scored first-half goals and Joshua Kimmich netted a late third, as Germany made it nine wins out of nine in European qualifying Group C, ahead of Sunday's final match at home to Azerbaijan.

"Northern Ireland have a population of just under 2 million and they were absolutely competitive in our group", Low said. "We doubled the lead very quickly".

"This was a bonus game for us, it could have gone to 4-0 or 5-0 but we kept our goal difference in a healthy state".

It was nearly 2-0 a few minutes later when Sandro Wagner got his head to a risky cross but a reflex save by Michael McGovern denied the Hoffenheim striker. We clawed our way back in and what we gave in the second half was fantastic.

"In September 2016 we looked at our group and told ourselves we wanted to dominate that group, make no compromises and possibly not drop any points either, which we've managed to do with a neat goal average to boot". In Hanover we played with one upfront we got a bit of joy.

If we can get to 22 points, even better.

"You need Germany to miss a few chances, which they did, and you need to take whatever opportunities you get".

The ball broke to Rudy some 30 yards from goal and his right foot thunderbolt flashed into the roof of the net - his first global goal one to savour.

"This country, especially during the last two campaigns, is used to winning and we are looking forward going to Norway and finishing this campaign with a victory", he said.

The introduction of Washington saw Northern Ireland pose a greater threat in attack, with the QPR striker striking the woodwork on 77 minutes, but Kimmich ended any hopes of a comeback with a cute finish from a narrow angle before Magennis grabbed a consolation with the last kick.

"We'll dissect it but I think Michael is looking to take the positives more than the negatives and I think we showed our calibre at times and the fact we managed to nick a goal is good". "The clearance could have been better but it was a quality strike so early in the game".
