Euro 2016 Group C results: Germany & Poland advance, Northern Ireland have a chance

The results of Euro 2016 Group C are in:

Germany and Poland will advance to the Round of 16. Germany finished first while Poland finished second.

Northern Ireland finished third but have a very strong chance of going to the next round by virtue of their point total.

Ukraine have been eliminated.

**

Germany held their three opponents scoreless, beating Ukraine in their first match before settling for a scoreless draw against Poland. By beating Northern Ireland 1-0 on Tuesday they secured the top spot in Group C. They will face an undetermined third-place team in the Round of 16.

Poland knocked off Northern Ireland and Ukraine but fell just a few goals short of taking first place from Germany. They will face Switzerland in the Round of 16 – the only determined match so far.

Northern Ireland are in second place on the third-place rankings as of writing thanks to their win over Ukraine. The key scenario in which they would not advance from third-place will be if both the Czech Republic and Sweden win their final matches.

Ukraine lost all three of their matches after failing to score a goal. Their -5 goal differential is the worst in the tournament as of writing.
