Kick-off: 6:00pm local (5:00pm BST) Assistant referees: Roman Slyško (Slovakia) Tomáš Mokrusch (Czech Republic) Fourth official: Anastasios Sidiropoulos (Greece) Additional assistant referees: Petr Ardeleánu (Czech Republic) Michal Paták (Czech Republic) Reserve assistant referee: Damianos Efthymiadis (Greece) Man of the Match: Gareth McAuley (Northern Ireland) This was Northern Ireland's first win in a major competition since 1982 and their first-ever win at a European Championships finals. Manager Michael O'Neill took the brave decision to make five changes to the opening game defeat to Poland and this encounter remained scoreless at half-time with few chances created. Shortly after the break, veteran defender Gareth McAuley met a Oliver Norwood cross perfectly and headed Northern Ireland into the lead. Referee Pavel Kralovec brought the players off the Stade de Lyon pitch for a couple of minutes due to a heavy hail storm. Niall McGinn crowned a famous victory with a second goal with the last kick of the game. That meant that, after only 17 games, ten goals had already been scored in the 87th minute or later at Euro 2016. The draw between Germany and Poland later in the day meant that Ukraine became the first country to be eliminated from this tournament.
