Germany waited for their last group match at Euro 2016 to field a proper striker in their starting lineup and were rewarded when Mario Gomez did just enough to give them a 1-0 win over Northern Ireland at the Parc des Princes Tuesday.Coach Joachim Loew had picked attacking midfielder Mario Goetze as his lone striker in the starting 11 for the first two group games, a 2-0 win over Ukraine and a goalless draw with Poland.Goetze looked harmless in both those matches, Germany's goals coming from defender Shkodran Mustafi and substitute midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.The baby-faced 24-year-old, who scored Germany's winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina, was back on the left side of the midfield against Northern Ireland and was not entirely convincing.
