Germany, England Qualify For 2018 World Cup
Germany secured the ticket to defend their World Cup title in Russia with a 3-1 win over Northern Ireland, who will likely move on to the playoffs from UEFA Group C.
Northern Ireland will finish in second place in the group, though with only eight of the nine group runners-up advancing to the playoffs, they may still need a point in Norway next week to be sure of their place.
Harry Kane scored deep into stoppage time to help England also claim their place at the World Cup with a 1-0 win against Slovenia in Group F.
The result leaves Gareth Southgate’s men six points ahead of Scotland in second place with only one more qualifying game to play.
