Thank you for being with us and for all of your comments. We will be back tomorrow so we will see you then. Bye for now.

Coming up tomorrow

We have had live text commentaries of today's football all day, and we have another bumper day of action tomorrow.

Firstly, from 13:30 BST, the Women's Super League title will be decided with Chelsea, Birmingham and Liverpool all vying for the trophy going into the final day of the season.

After that, the focus will switch to England's away qualifier in Estonia. That will be on the BBC Sport site from 16:00 BST as Roy Hodgson's side aim to record their third qualifying win. So don't miss out.

Manager reaction

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill, speaking to Sky Sports: "I am delighted with three points, especially with the performance and the intensity of our play. I knew we could not maintain the intensity through the second half but we saw the game out.

"We have worked hard all week. The emphasis in our training was on getting that intensity, playing high up the pitch and I don't think the scoreline at half-time did us justice, given the quality of our play.

"The fans were fantastic. It is a special atmosphere here and the players certainly responded to it. We go now in a confident mood to Greece on Tuesday. Belief is developing in the squad all the time. We don't envisage an easy game at all, but what we will have is a real go."

Albania, who won their opening Group I game by winning away at Portugal by a 1-0 margin, have gained another fine result, drawing 1-1 at home against Denmark. The hosts took a first-half lead through Ermir Lenjani's goal, but Lasse Vibe's late equaliser earned Denmark a point.

Northern Ireland top Group F after Finland and Greece drew 1-1, while Germany, as mentioned, lost in Poland in Group D.

Al: Germany 23 shots, 8 on target - did Poland get Jan Tomaszewski back in goal???

Polish goalkeeper Jan Tomaszewski famously denied England a place at the 1974 World Cup with a series of saves in a qualifier between the two sides.

World champions beaten

Poland 2-0 Germany

All over! Germany, after seven years without a defeat in European Championship qualifying, have now been beaten as Poland celebrate a famous 2-0 win. Warsaw is bouncing.

FULL-TIME

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Job well done. Two matches into the Euro 2016 qualification campaign and six points on the board. Michael O'Neill will be delighted with the result and his side's performance.

Roy Carroll did not have much to do, but his penalty save at the end of the first half denied Faroe Islands a way back into the game. Instead, only a number of fine saves from Gunnar Nielsen kept it at 2-0 after goals from Gareth McAuley and Kyle Lafferty.

Northern Ireland have never qualified for the European Championship but will travel to Greece on Tuesday full of confidence. If O'Neill's team can get something from that match in Athens then there will be genuine optimism of qualifying for France 2016.

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

It is 'ole' football from Northern Ireland as they play keep-ball, with every successful pass being cheered loudly from the Windsor Park crowd. There hasn't been much to cheer in recent years for Northern Ireland, but they have certainly played well tonight.

Poland 2-0 Germany

Well how about this! Germany, the world champions, are now losing 2-0 to Poland.

Robert Lewandowski did superbly to muscle off a defender and square a pass for substitute Sebastian Mila to sweep home. Amazing scenes with three minutes to go.

Fissuh Kelelom: "Germany are still recovering from Oktoberfest hangovers."

SUBSTITUTION

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Six minutes plus injury-time left and Kyle Lafferty, who has scored two of Northern Ireland's four Euro 2016 qualifying goals so far, is the man who comes off. He receives a tremendous reception, fully deserved, and is replaced by Kilmarnock's Josh Magennis.

Poland 1-0 Germany

Ten minutes to go in Warsaw, and Poland are edging closer to a famous victory against the world champions. It's all Germany, but can the Poles hang on?

Jamie Ward curls a direct free-kick at goal, the ball dips over the wall but Faroe Islands goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen, who has looked competent, dives forward to punch the ball with two hands away from danger.

Jack Morrison: Northern Ireland have their best chance ever it seems with a group of teams they can all beat.

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

But this game is not wrapped up yet. Faroe Islands have their own version of Rory Delap and long throws from the right wing are causing problems for the Northern Ireland defence.

The optimism of the first half and early in the second is being replaced by a sense of nervousness at Windsor Park. Northern Ireland deserve to take the three points, but need one more goal to settle any lingering tension.

CLOSE!

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Paddy McCourt scored twice against the Faroe Islands when they were last in Northern Ireland. And the substitute is immediately involved in the action, firing a shot narrowly off target.

There could be quite the upset on the cards tonight if Poland manage to hold on. They are beating Germany 1-0, a scoreline all the more impressive considering all but one of Germany's outfield players had a shot on goal in the first half.

SUBSTITUTION

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Another change for the home side. Paddy McCourt comes on in place of Niall McGinn.

There is no suggestion that Michael O'Neill is settling for what he has got and taking a 2-0 win. He wants more goals.

A great reception for the Brighton midfielder from the Windsor Park fans.

WHAT A MISS

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Connor McLaughlin doesn't score many. And, unfortunately, he has just shown why.

The Fleetwood right-back finds himself in the middle of the goal 12 yards out with the ball at his feet, dreaming of his first international goal. He then shakes his head as he trots back to his normal position, having shanked an effort well wide.

CLOSE!

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Jamie Ward's low shot, following a lovely build-up move from the hosts, takes a deflection for a corner. From that set piece, the ball falls to Kyle Lafferty but he cannot get over his shot and it sails harmlessly over the bar.

Mark Lynch: Wow what are the chances of Scotland and Northern Ireland winning but Germany losing??!

Andrew Kemp: The Polish bus has just arrived at the stadium. Expect to see no great ambition to take it to Germany.

"This wasn't in the script for the world champions! Arkadiusz Milik scores a lovely glancing header from a cross that leaves Manuel Neuer completely stranded. This is a different game now - and the National Stadium is a cauldron of noise."

SUBSTITUTION

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

It has been a quiet start to the second half, but Michael O'Neill makes his first change. He brings on Doncaster's Luke McCullough in place of first goalscorer Gareth McAuley.

Niall McGinn has one of the first shots on target in the second period, but he does not give his attempted dink another juice and it is easy for Gunnar Nielsen, the Faroe Islands goalkeeper.

Belfast boy in Cambridge: "It may only be the Faroes but the way we're playing is so encouraging. Great credit to Michael O'Neill. Let's put this one to bed early in the second half!"

Denver: "As a squad we actually look like we care about turning up and playing. Could just be Northern Ireland's turn."

We are back under way and, as John rightly says, the Windsor Park crowd is loving this. Will Northern Ireland score any more in the second half? Stay with us to find out.

John: "I know it's 'only' the Faroe Islands, but this is the best, most complete Northern Ireland team performance I can remember watching. You can only beat what is in front of you. Windsor is bouncing, great to see!"

Savour this Northern Ireland fans. As it stands, your team are going two points clear at the top of Group F.

Albania, who beat Portugal in the opening round of qualifiers, are at it again. This time they are 1-0 up against Denmark.

In Group F - that of Northern Ireland - Greece lead 1-0 in Finland, while world champions Germany are goalless in Poland in Group D, which is the home of Scotland and Republic of Ireland.

Meanwhile, in a friendly, Portugal are being beaten again, this time 1-0 by France, with Karim Benzema the scorer.

HALF-TIME

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Northern Ireland fully deserve their lead at Windsor Park. They started superbly, going ahead in the first 10 minutes through Gareth McAuley's goal.

Kyle Lafferty, who scored in the 2-1 win against Hungary, doubled the lead for Michael O'Neill's side and the striker could have had more, but for some fine goalkeeping from Faroe Islands' Gunnar Nielsen.

But the job is still not finished, and Faroe Islands had a wonderful chance to pull a goal back from the penalty spot. However, an excellent one-handed save from 37-year-old goalkeeper Roy Carroll kept the score at 2-0.

Poland 0-0 Germany

Alasdair Lamont

BBC Sport in Warsaw

"Germany really started to turn the screw at the end of that first half and debutant Karim Bellarabi could feasibly have had a hat-trick in the last 10 minutes, first slotting just wide from a tight angle and then twice having shots saved by Wojciech Szczesny. Add to that misses by Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels and Poland could have been going in well behind. As it is, they're still well in this match."

Andrew in Tandragee: "Let's not get carried away. It's the Faroe Islands we are playing."

Come on Andrew, enjoy it. Northern Ireland are playing wonderfully.

GREAT SAVE!

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Oliver Norwood has never scored for Northern Ireland in his previous 18 international matches, well, he nearly gets his first goal in the last minute of the first half.

His well-struck 30-yard effort was a difficult one to stop, but Gunnar Nielsen does well to get two hands to the effort and parry it to safety.

MISSED PENALTY - FRODI BENJAMINSEN (Faroe Islands)

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

But what a save from Roy Carroll. Frodi Benjaminsen strikes his penalty well but Carroll dives the correct way, to his left, throws up an arm and manages to divert the ball on to the post. The Northern Irish defence manage to scramble the ball away and the two-goal advantage remains.

PENALTY TO FAROE ISLANDS

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

A chance for Faroe Islands to get back into the game. Joan Edmundsson runs into the box but Shane Ferguson has a hold of his arm and pulls his opponent back. Edmundsson makes the most of it, but it was foolish of Ferguson to give the referee the option. Israel official Alon Yefet points to the spot...

CLOSE!

Northern Ireland 2-0 Faroe Islands

Another lovely move from Northern Ireland. Jamie Ward sprints down the right ring and Kyle Lafferty times his jump perfectly to power a header at the Faroe Islands goal. But the attempt goes just wide. The keeper was nowhere near it so it would have been 3-0 if the attempt was on target.

Approaching the half-hour mark and Northern Ireland have completely dominated, as these match stats show.

Poland 0-0 Germany

Alasdair Lamont

BBC Sport in Warsaw

"Cagey sort of start to this match, with Germany having plenty of possession and Poland looking to hit them on the counter-attack. So far, that's meant neither keeper has had to make a save of any note. Mats Hummels probably had the best chance with a header at the back post but he didn't connect at all well. The crowd's just started a Mexican wave, which is never a good sign!"
