Northern Ireland boss hopes Germany's star players are rested

Michael O'Neill jokingly says star players like Kroos and Gnabry are due a rest as his Northern Ireland side prepare to face Germany.

1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NORTHERN IRELAND MANAGER, MICHAEL O'NEILL, SAYING: "I am not sure the team will be any weaker, I would imagine, hopefully Toni Kroos gets a rest, and one or two others.

Gnabry I think needs a rest as well.

We will face a very strong team.

You know one of the difficulties we always have playing Germany is that when Jogi (Joachim Loew) makes substitutions and you realise that the players coming on are equally as strong as the players that are going off so that is a big challenge for us." STORY: Northern Ireland go into Tuesday's (November 19) EURO 2020 qualifier against Germany as something of a David versus Goliath battle.

The team are recovering from a missed penalty in their last game that gave the Netherlands automatic qualification alongside Germany for next summer's tournament.

Ahead of their encounter in Frankfurt, Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill jokingly said he hoped that star players like Toni Kroos and Serge Gnabry were rested and that the Germans were a strong team whichever players Joachim Loew selects.

Physicists Create Smallest Ship On Earth

A group of physicists say they have created the smallest ship on Earth that is small enough sail down the inside of a human hair. Netherland’s Leiden University physicists Rachel Doherty, Daniela Kraft and colleagues, 3D printed the miniscule vessel to follow bacteria known as microswimmers to better understand how they work. The boat measures an incredible 30 micrometers or about 0.001 inches. They also printed spiral shaped particles which rotate along while they are propelled through water, and other shapes including a Star Trek-style spaceship. In future the technique could also be used to create synthetic microswimmer that can travel through the human body to diagnose conditions or deliver targeted drugs.
