Four times he has pitted his wits against Joachim Low, four times they have lost; twice in World Cup qualifiers, in a Euro qualifier at Windsor Park in September and at the 2016 European Championships. GER vs NIR Dream11 Match Prediction: First of all, we will talk about the Germany team, till now in this league they have played a total of 7 matches out of which they have won 6 games, lost 1 and draws 0 games.

Germany look to wrap up their Euro 2020 qualifying process with top spot to their name. "They are very physical".

"We have had a hard year this year". Though, while his German counterpart Joachim Loew had revealed that he will be bringing in some fringe players (including the Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen), O'Neill did not believe that would make his players task any easier.

Jamal Lewis has already been ruled out, having returned to Norwich for assessment on a knee injury suffered on Saturday.

"There has been an influx of new players, relatively-inexperienced players who have been asked to play global football at a very early stage of their club careers", he said.

"I think we're in a good place". That was an opportunity we felt we missed.

We will be moving in with the entire backline from the unit in the form of Nico Schulz, Robin Koch, Lukas Klostermann and Matthias Ginter, players not only capable of keeping a cleansheet but also cantering down the park and emerging with either a goal or assist in between them. The team is on the 1st position of the point table of the tournament. "We have a route through the play off and the good thing for us there won't be anyone at the play-off at the level of Germany and Holland".

"The last five or six years have been brilliant", said Cathcart, who's set to win his 50th Northern Ireland cap if he features against the Germans.

He played left back that night in Maribor under Nigel Worthington, but is now part of an established centre-back pairing alongside Jonny Evans. I am satisfied in a hard year. We made big changes at the beginning of the year and then there were more changes within the big change. The striker has been in enterprising and imperious touch off late, traversing past defences to make him an instant pick for the day while from the other side we have the one player coming in as well in the form of Josh Magennis.
