Northern Ireland team line-up

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill has stuck by the eleven players who started against Unkraine so successfully in Lyon last Thursday.

Northern Ireland will again start with Michael McGovern in goals and a flat back four of Aaron Hughes, Craig Cathcart, Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans.

There had been speculation that Chris Baird may have replaced Corry Evans as the shielding midfielder but the manager sticks with Evans Jnr, Steven Davis and Ollie Norwood with Stuart Dallas and Jamie Ward tucked in on the flanks.

Conor Washington starts again ahead of Kyle Lafferty after impressing in the Stade de Lyon against the Ukrainians.

Germany make two changes, drafting Joshua Kimmich in for Benedikt Howedes in defence and Mario Gomez in for Julian Draxler as part of the three behind lone striker Mario Gotze.
