Heavyweights such as Germany and Sweden facing crunch fixtures

At first glance, it is surprising not to see Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s side leading Group I, especially as they have a perfect record thus far and a spectacular goal difference of 31 for and 0 against. But the Irish, as well as having played a game more, have also been very consistent, only dropping points in their draw with Greece.

Could they spring another surprise and put the brakes on the German juggernaut? Even taking a point home would be an historic achievement for Ireland, who have never managed to avoid defeat against Die Nationalelf.
