However, Halstenberg's first worldwide goal three minutes into the second half and Serge Gnabry's late strike made the difference, as Germany breathed new life into their qualification campaign. 'Whenever he does hang up his boots, which hopefully will be after I've left this job, he will rightly be remembered as one of the greatest players we've ever had.

Germany beats hosts Northern Ireland 2-0 on Monday with two goals in the second half to get their Euro 2020 qualification on track as they bounced back from last week's loss to the Netherlands to take over top spot in Group C.

"I think we have good potential for the future and it's about working with this team to bring them through". "I have to say, it looked like we were going to struggle to get back into the game but we didn't and we created a couple of half-chances".

"Last night I was watching Cristiano Ronaldo play at 34 years of age for his country and what it means to him, and that's why global football is so special".
