2016-06-21 Northern Ireland v Germany

The EURO 2016 group match between Northern Ireland and Germany at the Parc des Princes on 21st June 2016. A heroic performance from the boys in green; eighties World Cup legend Norman Whiteside wrote in his column that Michael McGovern’s performance was a goalkeeping “masterclass” that reminded him of a night in November 1985, when a similar display from Pat Jennings kept England out at Wembley and booked the team’s passage to Mexico. Gomez scored the only goal of the game which sent Germany through as Group C winners. Northern Ireland advanced as one of the best third-place sides.
