Video: Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill prepares squad for tough challenge of taking on World champions Germany


Northern Ireland now face a daunting away match against reigning World champions Germany.

The side notched-up a 4-0 home win against San Marino at the New National Sports Stadium on Saturday night.

But manager Michael O'Neill said his boys were under no illusion just how tough a challenge they face in Hanover on Tuesday night.

O'Neill, speaking in a post-match press conference after the San Marino win, said Germany were still smarting after failing to win the Euros and had already shown they are out to prove a point as they set out on a campaign to retain their World Cup trophy.

Northern Ireland last played Germany in the Euros in June when the World Champions narrowly beat them 1-0.
