+++ 10.09.2019: After Belfast victory: many ways for DFB team to the direct European Championship ticket +++
After the 2-0 win in Belfast against Northern Ireland, the German national football team leads the qualification group C and has the best prospects for the direct European Championship ticket. This is followed by also five games and twelve points, the Northern Ireland and the Netherlands with nine counters in four games. Belarus (5 games / 3 points) has only a theoretical and final light Estonia (5/0) no chance at all on the European Championship ticket.
Since the contenders Holland and Northern Ireland play against each other twice in October and November, there are numerically numerous opportunities for the DFB selection, as a group first or second in the group to be in the European Championship finals. In extreme cases, even just another point could be enough from three games. The ticket can only be booked in November.
Certainly and without any slide rule, you will be in the running with three wins in the three games that will be played in Estonia (13.10.), Belarus (16.11.) And Northern Ireland (19.11.) Next summer. Certainly already victories against Estonia and Belarus and a draw against Northern Ireland are enough. In a defeat against the Northern Irish, however, a complicated direct comparison with Holland and Northern Ireland would be possible, in which it could possibly come on every goal.
In the not unlikely event that the Netherlands win both games against Northern Ireland, even a minimal variation of just one German point out of three games would be enough for the European Championship. In that case, Germany would be present at the tournament if the games against Estonia and Belarus are lost and at least a draw is played to qualify against Northern Ireland. The Netherlands would be group winners. Germany would be in equal points with the Northern Irish (13 each) because of the direct comparison with them second.

Record national player Lothar Matthäus calls for Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz's start-up appearance in the European Championship qualifier this Monday (20.45, RTL) in Northern Ireland. "It does not matter if Joachim Löw changes the system against Northern Ireland or not: In my opinion he has to bring Kai Havertz because he is in top form", said the 58-year-old of the "Bild". In a formation as Löw had voted against the Netherlands on Friday, Havertz could replace Marco Reus. "If the system is changed to four-chain, there will be one more offensive player, then there would be room for both, but it's clear: Havertz has to play."
Following the illness-related loss of Ilkay Gündogan, Löw had said on Sunday: "We'll still have to see how we will play." Kai Havertz is certainly a candidate for the starting eleven. " In the game against the Netherlands, the 20-year-old had come on in the second section, but could hardly set accents.
+++ 09.09.2019: Former World Champion Berthold confident for European Championship qualifiers +++
The former football world champion Thomas Berthold warns of a premature negative conclusion on the renewal course of the German national football team. "In my opinion, you should only settle after the EURO," said the 54-year-old before the appearance in Northern Ireland on Monday (20.45 / RTL). "These qualifying matches against Estonia and Northern Ireland and whatever they are called, with all the love, if we do not beat them, we do not need to go there."
The qualification of the selection of national coach Joachim Loew for the European Championship 2020 Berthold prepares also after the 2: 4 against the Netherlands no worries. "We will be second, we will definitely qualify for the European Championship," said Berthold on the edge of a charity match in the city of Geislingen in Baden-Württemberg.
The German defense behavior was not the only weak point from the point of view of the former defender against the Netherlands. "The game is still a lot in the bad mood.The team was too passive to me.What was missing me in such a controversial game, is the toxicity, the Galligkeit in a duel," said Berthold. "I also missed that someone on the square says something."
+++ 09.09.2019: Löws specification in Belfast: Three points - "Here it is burning in the stadium" +++
The order is clear. "Our task is three points," said coach Joachim Loew unmistakably the goal of the German national football team in the evening (20.45 / RTL) in Belfast against Northern Ireland. Even after the 2: 4 against the Netherlands sees Löw his team in the European Championship qualifiers continue to "on target". With a victory, Germany in Group C would displace the then-point Northern Ireland from the first place in the table and would be fully back on track towards the European Championship 2020.
However, Bayern pro Joshua Kimmich also warned in Belfast: "We must not allow ourselves any more slips." Against the strong fighting Northern Irish Löw calls in direct duels man against man, "to increase the potential for aggression". The approximately 18,000 spectators in the small Windsor Park will provide a special atmosphere.
"Here it is already burning in the stadium," Löw still knows from the last German success in the Northern Irish two years ago in the World Cup qualifiers. Sebastian Rudy, Sandro Wagner and Kimmich met in the 3: 1. "Anyone who assumes that it is a walk is out of place," said returnee Kimmich on Sunday before the final training of the German team at Windsor Park.
SCHRUMPFKADER: Even before the Holland match Leon Goretzka left injured. After the 2: 4 against Oranje followed Nico Schulz (foot). And on arrival in Belfast it was clear that Ilkay Gündogan also fails because of a flu infection. "It was planned that Ilkay runs aground," said Löw. His squad has shrunk from 22 to 19 players. This is "not a very simple situation," Loew said: "Making many changes is not beneficial for a young team." He has to rebuild something more now.
Rear turns Loew from three to four chain. Schulz will defend Marcel Halstenberg or Jonas Hector on the left. And Kai Havertz could move into midfield after the departure of Gündogan. Löw described the 20-year-old as an option.
OPPONENT: With two wins against Belarus and Estonia, the Northern Irishmen have made a good start in Group C. But now comes the duels with Germany and the Netherlands, which will decide whether it is enough for the team of coach Michael O'Neill for one of the two direct European Championship tickets.
Northern Ireland's squad is filled with players who play for mid-range clubs in the English Premier League. "The team is very well played," said Löw. Typical "island football" awaits the Dortmund Julian Brandt. The only defeat of the DFB selection in Northern Ireland is 37 years back.
HISTORY: Oliver Bierhoff always returns to Windsor Park with special memories. On August 20, 1997, today's DFB director scored there in the World Cup qualifiers with three goals between the 73rd and 79th Minute, the fastest hat-trick in the history of the DFB selection.

Löw also announced that they wanted to convert against the still unbeaten Northern Ireland on the defensive from a three to a four-chain.

The last goal in injury time could have unpleasant effects until the finals this summer with early duels against top teams like France or Portugal.

Only the first of qualifying Group C would have the chance to be placed in the pot of the top six teams in the European Championship draw. UEFA will soon publish the corresponding mode. Should Germany qualify for the European Championships as second in the group, it will probably end up in Pot 2 or even Pot 3 at the Los ceremony in Bucharest on 30 November. Pot 4 is currently unlikely because of the points already collected.
This would be possible for the group matches this summer in Munich according to the current situation constellations with two World Cup finalists France and Croatia or the strong Belgians and Portugal. On the other hand, group winners of the category Finland, Austria or the Czech Republic are distinguished as qualifying group winners.
Group games against other hosts of the pan-European championships such as Spain, Italy, England, Holland or Russia are not possible for the DFB-Elf. They play in the group stage in an EM-participation in their own country. Hungary, as co-host of Group F, would be safe in the DFB Group if they qualified successfully.
The European Championship draw mode is based on the qualification in qualifying, according to the UEFA plan:
Pot 1: The six best group winners
Pot 2: The other four group winners and the two best runners-up
Pot 3: The runners-up in places 3-8 in the qualification list
Pot 4: The two worst runners-up and the four winners of the Nations League playoffs. The latter may possibly be fixed in a second draw of a group in April.
