Northern Ireland vs Germany Team News

Coach Michael O’Neill made a number of changes to the team that faced Poland in the Euro 2016 opener and that helped Northern Ireland record a win over Ukraine in their second group game. Kyle Lafferty has lost his place in the starting XI and there is every chance Conor Washington will lead the line for the Green and White Army against Germany. Stuart Dallas is widely expected to start as well.

Injured: None

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Jerome Boateng misses the last training, but the Bayern Munich defender should recover in time to face Northern Ireland. Mats Hummels is fit as well and he should keep his place in the starting line-up. Mario Gotze failed to impress against Poland and there is every chance Mario Gomez will lead the line for the Germans against Michael O’Neill’s troops. Andre Shurrle is pushing for a start as well. Antonio Rudiger was forced to withdraw from the squad with injury.

Injured: Antonio Rudiger (11/0)

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Quick Facts

  • Northern Ireland managed to keep four clean sheets in previous five games
  • Green and White Army are after their first ever win over Germany
  • Germany scored 2+ goals in four of their last six games at Euro finals
  • Joachim Low’s men had 15 goal attempts against Poland

Northern Ireland vs Germany Prediction

David faces Goliath at Parc des Princes. Germany failed to impress in the goalless draw with Poland and they are certainly eager to prove their worth against Northern Ireland. Joachim Low is likely to field the best possible side against the Green and White Army as the World Cup title holders aim to clinch top position in Group C. Northern Ireland did defeat Ukraine in their second group game, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Germany.
