Davis set for defining clash with Germany

By SFC Media time Tue 21 Jun Club

Following their historic win against Ukraine last week, Steven Davis and Northern Ireland will be hoping to make it another famous day when they face Germany at EURO 2016 later.

The Irish recorded their first ever win at a European Championship when they triumphed 2-0, in Lyon, last Thursday, sparking hopes that they could qualify from Group C for the knockout stages.

Michael O’Neill’s team will advance to the last 16 with a win today, but that is a big ask, as they face world champions Germany, in Paris (kick-off 5pm BST).

A draw or a defeat will see them finish third in the group, where they are currently placed, just one point behind Germany and Poland, although that could still be good enough to reach the knockout stages.

For Davis, the competition has already been a source of immense pride, having captained his country to their first major tournament since the 1986 World Cup.

After last week’s famous win, he will now be hoping that he can lead Northern Ireland to what would be another incredible moment in their history if they can make it to the last 16.
