Defence key as Northern Ireland stand on verge of playoffs

Postby kema cool » Mon Sep 04, 2017 8:37 am


In October of last year Sami Khedira made it 2-0 to Germany against SBOBET Northern Ireland in the 17th minute in Hanover. The significance of the goal at the time was that it cemented Germany’s control of the game and, ultimately, their victory. The significance 11 months on is that it is the last goal Northern Ireland have conceded in World Cup qualification.
Michael O’Neill’s team have played four qualifiers since Hanover and won them all with clean sheets. In total they have played seven matches in the group and kept six clean sheets. It is a striking demonstration of O’Neill’s defensive organisation and one more blank on Monday night in Belfast against the Czech Republic and his team will be guaranteed second place in group.
SBOBET It would represent another milestone in O’Neill’s transformation of a side for whom losing, or not winning, had almost become a custom.
One point would not yet ensure a place in November’s playoffs but it would be another step forward. It would also mean that Northern Ireland – drawn from Pot 3 – had hurdled the Czechs – drawn from Pot 2.
It was from Pot 5 that the Irish won their group in qualifying for Euro 2016 in France and with the core personnel the same, that experience bolsters the squad’s knowledge about how to SBOBET handle occasions like this and get over the line.
