Ruthless Germany brush aside Northern Ireland to book World Cup spot

Northern Ireland host Germany at Windsor Park tongiht for a World Cup qualification clash.

Northern Ireland vs Germany: The team Northern Ireland and Germany of Group C face each other today in the UEFA World Cup Qualifiers.

The Northern Ireland team is boosted by the return of defender Gareth McAuley, who missed his previous worldwide matches because of injury. players George Saville and Jordan Jones are in the squad for the first time.

2' - GOAL! Northern Ireland 0-1 Germany.

The hosts, backed by a boisterous crowd, were repeatedly exposed and McGovern made a superb save at point-blank range to keep out a Sandro Wagner header three minutes later.

The goal gave Germany the ability to relax and control the game, and the visitors slowed the tempo of the game to try and retain possession with less attacking impetus than in the opening minutes.

The visitors got a third four minutes from time as the unmarked Kimmich scored, his shot beating McGovern at the near post.

"We look forward to the Norway game and it will be a bit clearer after the round of games are completed". Magennis curls a unsafe cross for Corry Evans at the back post. The woodwork comes to the rescue for Northern Ireland!

Yet the close shave failed to be a catalyst for a second-half fightback as Germany resumed their dominance immediately after the break.

21' - GOAL! Northern Ireland 0-2 Germany.

Conor Washington saw a rising left-footed drive clip the woodwork and go over before Kimmich put the game beyond doubt with Germany's third, the full-back inadvertently teed up at the back post by Jonny Evans' clearing header.

However Joachim Löw's Germany side were well drilled defensively and possessed too much talent for Northern Ireland in the end. However it was to be Northern Ireland who had the last laugh as Magennis headed in with the final kick of the game, prompting an enormous cheer from the home fans who had been brilliant for the full 90 minutes.

Crucially for O'Neill, neither their goal difference or perilous disciplinary situation were impacted too much - and they remain very much on course for a two-legged tie in November that will determine if they will join Germany in Russian Federation.

O'Neill praised his side's character for not letting Germany beat them by a bigger margin. There is Northern Ireland's best chance, but they have blown it!
