Northern Ireland have bowed out of the European Women's Under-19 Championship after a 6-0 defeat against an impressive German side in Ballymena last night.

It means the local girls finish bottom of their group.

But manager Alfie Wylie says in many ways they've been the stars of the tournament, drawing in the crowds to help make it a big success.



His side had already made history by becoming the first Northern Ireland women's team to score and secure a point in a major finals when they drew with Scotland last Friday.



Germany will play France in Thursday's semi-finals with the Netherlands up against Spain.


Both games are at Windsor Park with the final also at the National Stadium, on Sunday.


After pipping Northern Ireland to third place in their group on goal difference, Scotland will meet England on Thursday at Mourneview Park in a play-off for a place in the 2018 Under-20 Women's World Cup.
