Northern Ireland will face their toughest test in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers when they meet Group C leaders Germany in Hanover.

First-half goals from Julian Draxler and Sami Khedira helped Germany to a 2-0 home-win over Northern Ireland. Find out who will get closer to the big show in Russian Federation in 2018 and watch the live stream of the FIFA qualifier game here at 2:35pm EST. We were disappointed to go behind the way that we did and lose the second goal at the time that we did because we were trying to control Germany.

"The main thing is that we got six points from these two games and did not concede any goals", Low said.

"But I'm not sure there is a system which can contain Germany at this moment in time".

Germany coach Joachim Loew revealed he told his side they need to be "ruthless" and qualify for Russian Federation as quickly as possible. "We took a quick lead and sat back after that".


- Northern Ireland conceded two goals in an worldwide fixture for the first time since November 2014 vs Romania (0-2).

Germany have bounced back from going out to hosts France in the semi-finals of Euro 2016 in typically robust fashion. German head coach Loachim Löw referred about the current outlook: " We want to build on the performance from the Czech Republic match, even if this will be a completely different game. We are playing the world champions in a fantastic stadium so what's not to relish? We have to collect ourselves again.

Having won just one of their first 18 matches under the 47-year-old, he oversaw a record 12-match unbeaten streak earlier this year and a date with the Germans is, according to Evans, less daunting than it may have been in previous years.

The affable Hummels was in a jovial mood ahead of the contest, pointing out that the travelling Green and White Army might be able to lift their team with a ditty that the Bayern defender fell in love with at the Euros. "Mum and Dad say that it is mentioned often to them so it's nice to have that and be remembered for a game like that".

Robert Lewandowski struck five minutes into stoppage time to earn Poland a 2-1 victory over 10-man Armenia and keep the team on pace with Montenegro at the top of the group.
