PARIS, June 21 (Xinhua) -- Mario Gomez scored the only goal to help Germany beat Northern Ireland 1-0 to qualify for the knockout stage as Group C leader at Euro 2016 here on Tuesday.

Northern Ireland, playing their first major tournament since 1986, also booked a berth in the last 16 after finishing as one of the best third-placed teams.

The 30-year-old Gomez fired home from close range in th 30th minute after unselfish play inside the area by Thomas Muller, who laid it into his teammate's path to put the world champions ahead.

But Germany's superiority was actually far more than the scoreline has suggested.

In the 36th minute, Muller's instinctive first-time effort hit the Northern Ireland bar and in the second half Mario Gotze's chances were saved by Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern.

McGovern, who plays for Scottish club Hamilton Academical, was undoubtedly Northern Ireland's Man of the Match as he single-handedly denied Germany eight goals during the match.

Joachim Low, the head coach of Germany, gave a lot of credit to Northern Ireland: "With all due respect to Northern Ireland, who did very well in qualifying, they were always going to throw everything into this match because it's the game of their lives. It was to be expected that they fought hard and showed passion. "

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill said, "It's not in my nature to set the team up to lose 7-0. But we earned the right to be here and we'll have earned the right to be in the last 16 if we make it that far. I'm immensely proud that we are even playing here against the world champions in Paris."

He added, "I think the players will take an awful lot from the performance. We don't have any players in our squad that have played any European football, so when they step up the experience of playing against the level of opponent we have today can only help us.

O'Neill said at the post match press conference that he hoped the team could qualify.

"It was very difficult for us but we hung in there and defended great. Michael McGovern had a fantastic night and hopefully we have the opportunity now to play in the knockout stages."

Later when he learned they would not go home, he got excited.

"It's surreal," O'Neill told the BBC. "I'm not sure it's really sunk in yet, but it's a fantastic achievement.

"We knew the group would be difficult. What we saw tonight was a team that refused to be beaten by a big margin and did everything possible to stay in the game."

Asked whether he would rather face Wales or France, O'Neill added: "If I was picking a team I thought we had a better chance against I would say Wales, but we'll see who comes out after the final group games on Wednesday." Enditem

BERLIN Danton Heinen Bruins Jersey , Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Income inequality is at a historical high in Germany, local newspapers Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Sueddeutsche Zeitung Monday quoted a report by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy as saying.

"This circumstance is not fair and poses a threat to Germany's social cohesion," Matthias Machnig Zdeno Chara Bruins Jersey , state secretary at the ministry, told Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Germany has a "wage problem," the report said. Low- and middle-income earners were not benefiting enough from economic growth.

The report said real gross wages of the lower 40 percent of income earners in 2015 were much lower than in 1995 because their income had less purchasing power.

The report said the upper 60 percent of wage earners Brandon Carlo Bruins Jersey , in contrast, have recorded strong rises in their income, noting that the wage gap has thus widened significantly.

Machnig said a large share of the German population "was not able to advance Riley Nash Bruins Jersey ," adding that "the children are suddenly worse off than their parents."

"The tax burden on lower incomes has to be reduced. The principle of equal pay for equal work must finally be achieved for women," he told Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Wage is a hot topic in the lead-up to a federal parliament election in September, not least because household consumption accounted for 1.1 percent out of Germany's 1.9 percent gross domestic product growth in 2016.
