Euro2016: Southampton star Davis looks ahead to Germany in wake of famous Northern Ireland win

Steven Davis cannot wait for Northern Ireland's monumental meeting with Germany at Euro2016.

The Southampton midfielder was part of the Norn Iron side that defeated Ukraine 2-0 in Lyon on Thursday and is well aware that they now need a positive result against the reigning world champions in Paris on Tuesday if they want to sneak through to the knockout stages of the competition.

Davis said: "We know the Germany game is going to be extremely difficult but what's not to look forward to?

"We're going to Paris, playing in front of a full house and our fans will be there in massive numbers and in high spirits again.

"Playing against the World champions – it's great isn't it."

Gareth McAuley and Niall McGinn scored second-half goals as Michael O'Neill's men, in their first major tournament since the 1984 World Cup, overcame Ukraine to move to their position in Group C.
