Northern Ireland hope to continue their storybook run at the 2016 UEFA European Championships with what would be a startling upset of Germany, the reigning World Champions in a match that will stream live Tuesday, with the winner, if there is one, potentially finishing atop Group C. And surprisingly, the scrappy Northern Ireland side is full of belief that they can stun the mighty Die Nationalmannschaft.
“We know they’re a very, very good team but every team has its weakness,” said Northern Ireland striker Josh Magennis.
“They have a ridiculous amount of quality but I’ve been brought up to fear no man, only God. If you don’t believe you can win a football match, you’re in the wrong sport.”

Northern Ireland has faced Germany 14 times prior to Tuesday’s match — winning only twice and losing eight times with four draws.
After losing to Poland 1-0 in their opener, Northern Ireland are riding high off a 2-0 domination of Ukraine, who are now eliminated from the possibility of advancement, coming into the duel with Germany.
Germany, on the other hand, were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw against Poland leaving the three-time champions at just four points, seemingly assured of advancement to the Round of 16, but needing a clear victory over the Northern Ireland upstarts to have a chance of topping Group C.
A draw also puts Germany through and probably would allow Northern Ireland to advance.

The last time Northern Ireland actually defeated Germany came almost 33 years ago when a Northern Ireland squad featuring the team’s current assistant manager Jimmy Nicholl took on the country still known as West Germany in a November 1983 UEFA Euros qualifying match.
German Manager Joachim Loew said that his team is in the game to win it and, they hope, finish their group stage play on top of the group.
“We want to beat Northern Ireland. They have unbelievable fighting spirit and energy.”
