Davis: We're in a very good place ahead of Germany

By SFC Media time Tue 21 Jun Club

Steven Davis says Northern Ireland head into their UEFA EURO 2016 clash with world champions Germany in a “very good place”.

Michael O’Neill’s men beat Ukraine 2-0 in their previous Group C encounter, leaving Northern Ireland on three points from their opening two games in France.

A win against the Germans would guarantee a spot in the last 16 of the competition, while a draw may be enough as one of the best third-placed teams.

Talking to reporters in France ahead of Tuesday’s game, Davis said: “We’re in a very good place after the game against Ukraine.

“We’re under no illusions over how difficult it is going to be.

“We will have to reach the levels we reached against Ukraine, if not surpass them. We have everything to play for.

“Everyone is really looking forward to the game.

“Germany have got a lot of quality, a lot of rotation in midfield, so it’s going to be a big test for us.

“We know we’re not going to dominate possession. It’s about choosing the right times to put pressure on.

“They know how to attack the spaces and pick pockets very well, but throughout the tournament everyone has been relaxed.”
