But it's Germany, they'll likely win the whole thing again. NI can still qualify via the playoffs as a 2nd placed team and nobody in our group can beat us on points. Honestly, to finish 2nd in a group with Germany in it (who have won every game so far) is as good as finishing 1st, for a team like Northern Ireland.

That was when I was on the 15 side of 16, I'm not sure if I had shaved or not, that was the difference between me looking my age and looking in my 20s back then.

When I was almost 17 and older we were going to the pub every week. I would be let in without question while people in upper 6th were being asked for ID

Cider (not the cheap student-fodder stuff) is about all my son ended up liking. He couldn't quite develop a taste for Guinness.
