McGovern thwarts dominant Germans

Northern Irish goalkeeper Michael McGovern was in superb form on Tuesday afternoon during Germany’s 1-0 win over the unfancied Irish.

The 31-year-old former Hamilton Academical stopper made a string of incredible saves to secure a scoreline which looks likely to see Northern Ireland through to the last 16.

He is currently unattached after his contract at Hamilton Academical recently expired. He could have Bayern Munich on the phone soon enough.

Germany had 25 shots in a very one sided affair and the Northern Irish will have their goalkeeper Michael McGovern to thank if they find themselves in the last 16.
