Germany leave it late in Lurgan

Northern Ireland 0-3 Germany Rouwen Hennings struck twice as Germany scored three goals in the last 13 minutes to end the home team's resolve.

Rouwen Hennings struck twice as Germany scored three goals in the last 13 minutes to finally end the resolve of Northern Ireland in Lurgan and open their Group 9 account with a win.

Late drama
The home side looked to be heading for a hard-fought point when the 20-year-old Hennings finally broke through on 77 minutes. A product of Hamburger SV, the forward is currently on loan at 2. Bundesliga side VfL Osnabrück and the first-team experience appears to have paid immediate dividends. He added a second in added time, making it 3-0 following Mesut Özil’s 85th-minute strike.
