Mats Hummels and Will Grigg swapped shirts after Euro 2016 Group C clash

Mats Hummels and Will Grigg swapped jerseys following the Germany and Northern Ireland Euro 2016 match on Tuesday.

Northern Ireland's Will Grigg has turned into one of the more unlikely stars of the tournament.

The Wigan attacker may not have won any game time in France, but he's still managed to make the headlines regardless with the fans singing his name in the popular new chant "Will Grigg's On Fire."

Prior to Tuesday's meeting, Germany centre-back Mats Hummels had voiced his hopes to swap jerseys with the Northern Ireland substitute, and, speaking to reporters after the match, Grigg said that the 27-year-old indeed asked for his jersey.

"Yes, he was successful," Grigg said. "I talked to him after the match, we met in the tunnel. Mats appears to be a really nice lad."

Elsewhere, Germany defender Benedikt Howedes has praised Joachim Low's decision to bench him for Joshua Kimmich, 21.

Unlike in the first two Germany matches, the Nationalmannschaft created several chances over their right wing, with Kimmich time and time again sending balls into dangerous positions in Northern Ireland's box.

"Jo played a great match," Howedes said. "It was the right decision by the coach. We all have to bow to the big picture."

Kimmich, who "did a super job," according to Mesut Ozil, remained humble after only his second Germany cap, and said: "I had 10 men around me. Everyone helps each other."
