Germany move closer to World Cup qualification

Saturday, 2 September 2017 :  Mats Hummels scored a late winner as Germany beat the Czech Republic to boost their – and Northern Ireland’s – chances of reaching the World Cup.

The Germans, who have won all seven games, are five points above Northern Ireland with three games to go in Group C.

Timo Werner scored an early opener from Mesut Ozil’s pass, but Vladimir Darida equalised with a long-range effort.

Hummels headed home in the 88th minute to win the game.

As a result of that goal, Northern Ireland – who won 3-0 in San Marino – only need to draw against the Czechs on Monday to seal second place. Of the nine group runners-up, the eight teams with the best records will enter the play-offs.

Defending champions Germany can qualify for Russia if they beat Norway, and Michael O’Neill’s side do not win.
