Gomez’s first half goal ensures the world champions top the group, with Poland in second after they beat Ukraine 1-0. Northern Ireland finish third. Three points could be enough for them to get through – but they will need Czech Republic to not win tonight or Belgium and Italy both to win tomorrow night. Or a result to go their way in Group F tomorrow afternoon.
The Ulstermen defended brilliantly and Michael McGovern had the game of his life in goal – sign him up! sign him up! sign him up! – though they never threatened Manuel Neuer. Germany looked excellent at times but at others were ponderous. They could have scored five or six on another day.
