The next match between the two teams was played on 4 December , at White Hart Lane in London, the first full international to take place between the teams in England and the first since the rise to power of Hitler and the Nazis in It was also the first match to stir up particular controversy, as The Observer newspaper reported protests by the British Trades Union Congress that the game could be used as a propaganda event by the Nazi regime.
Between 7, and 8, Germans will travel via Dover, and special trains will bring them to London. A description broadcast throughout Germany Sir Walter Citrine , General Secretary of the TUC, in a further letter to Sir John Simon , the Home Secretary , said that 'such a large and carefully organised Nazi contingent coming to London might confirm the impression among people in this country that the event is being regarded as of some political importance by the visitors'.
Of the match itself, however, which England won 3—0, the same newspaper reported the following week that: "So chivalrous in heart and so fair in tackling were the English and German teams who played at Tottenham in mid-week that even the oldest of veterans failed to recall an international engagement played with such good manners by everybody.
The next game between the two teams, and the last to be played before the Second World War , was again in Germany, a friendly at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on 14 May , played in front of a crowd of , people.
It was the last time England played against a unified German team until the s. This was the most controversial of all the early encounters between the two teams, as before kick-off the English players were ordered by the Foreign Office to line up and perform a Nazi salute in respect to their hosts.
How compliant the players were with this situation has been a matter of debate, with a feature in The Observer in speculating that they were "perhaps merely indifferent players who had undoubtedly become more reluctant, to the point of mutiny, by the time the post-war memoirs were published.
A BBC News Online report published in reported that the salute was calculated to show: "that Germany, which two months earlier had annexed Austria, was not a pariah state.
The friendly game effectively helped clear the way for Chamberlain 's " Peace for our time " deal with Hitler, which, in turn, led to Germany's invasion of Czechoslovakia.
For Hitler the propaganda effect of that game was more important than anything else. The two countries did not meet again on a football pitch for sixteen years.
Two German states had been founded in , with the Germany national football team continuing its tradition, based in the Federal Republic of Germany West Germany from to The German Democratic Republic East Germany fielded a separate national football team ; although the English did play some matches against them, the rivalry never developed the same edge or high-profile.
England won further friendlies against West Germany in 3—1 at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin and 1—0 in Nuremberg. Both countries had a successful World Cup in , and met in the final played at Wembley on Saturday, 30 July This was and still is regarded by many as the most important match ever played between the two teams, and it was also the first time they had ever met in a competitive game, as opposed to the friendly matches they had played before.
It was also a highly eventful and in some respects controversial game, which created [ citation needed ] the modern rivalry between the teams. England led 2—1 until the very end of normal time, when a German goal levelled the scores and took the match into extra time.
In the first period of extra time, England striker Geoff Hurst had a shot on goal which bounced down from the crossbar and then out of the goal, before being cleared away by the German defenders.
After consulting with a linesman , Tofiq Bahramov , the referee awarded a goal to England. Bahramov, from the USSR , became famous and celebrated in English popular culture as "the Russian linesman", although he was actually from Azerbaijan.
When England played the Azerbaijan national team in a World Cup qualifier in October —in a stadium named after Bahramov—many England fans travelling to the game asked to be shown the grave of the official, who had died in , so that they could place flowers on it, and before the game a ceremony honouring him was attended by Hurst and other footballing celebrities.
Germany, however, did not believe that the ball had crossed the line, with commentators such as Robert Becker of Kicker magazine accusing the linesman of bias because the German team had eliminated the USSR in the semi-final.
England, however, scored another controversial goal at the end of extra time, winning 4—2. This goal came after fans began to spill onto the field, thinking the game was over, which should have stopped play.
The goal, a third for Hurst making him the only man ever to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final , was described by BBC Television commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme in a now-famous piece of commentary, " They think it's all over The expression has become a celebrated part of English popular culture, indelibly linked with the game in the minds of the English public.
The final's influence on the culture surrounding the England team would not end there, however. Despite playing on their home soil, England wore their away kit of red shirts, white shorts and red socks, and since then England fans have had a special affinity for their team's away kit, with retro shirts selling well in recent years.
The game is often held as having been the height of English sporting achievement, but it also created some less favourable legacies; a common chant among England supporters at Germany games is " Two World Wars and One World Cup " to the tune of " Camptown Races ".
Two years after the World Cup, on 1 June , the two teams met again in another friendly match, this time in West Germany, in which the Germans won their first victory over an English team, 38 years after they had first played.
The scoreline was 1—0, Franz Beckenbauer scoring for West Germany, but as Hugh McIlvanney wrote in his match report for The Observer : "Comparing this miserable hour and a half in which fouls far outnumbered examples of creative football with the last great meeting between the countries is entirely fatuous.
But that will not prevent the Germans from doing it. Their celebrations will not be inhibited by the knowledge that today's losers were almost a reserve team, and even the agonies of boredom they shared with us will now seem worthwhile.
They have beaten England, and that is enough. Far more noted and remembered, however, was the next competitive meeting between the two teams, in the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup in Mexico.
England were 2—0 up, but Beckenbauer and Uwe Seeler equalised at 2—2 in the second half. In extra time, Geoff Hurst had a goal mysteriously ruled out  and then Gerd Müller scored in extra time to win 3—2.
England had been weakened by losing their goalkeeper Gordon Banks to illness, and also substituted Bobby Charlton , one of their leading players, while the Germans were in the midst of their comeback.
As McIlvanney put it when reflecting on the loss five days later, "Sir Alf Ramsey's team are out because the best goalkeeper most people have ever seen turned sick, and one who is only slightly less gifted was overwhelmed by the suddenness of his promotion.
In sport disaster often feeds upon itself but this was a sickeningly gluttonous example. The result was psychologically damaging for English morale—as The Guardian newspaper described in a feature: "Four days later Harold Wilson blamed Labour 's loss in the general election on the defeat.
This marked the start of two decades of German footballing dominance and England's decline. Two years later the teams met once more, in the quarter-finals of the European Championship , which were at the time held on a home-and-away basis.
England lost 3—1 at Wembley on 29 April in the home leg, and on 13 May could only draw 0—0 in West Germany, being knocked out of the competition.
Said The Observer in "England may have been robbed of the chance in Mexico It was a conspiracy of fate more than a footballing defeat.
In , there were no excuses at all. West Germany did not just knock England out of the European Championships, they came to Wembley and comprehensively outclassed England.
There were several friendly games played in the s and s, with wins for both nations, but the next competitive match—a second round group game at the FIFA World Cup —ended in a disappointing 0—0 draw.
England were later eliminated from that competition after drawing Spain , while Germany reached the final. However, when the teams next met competitively, at the FIFA World Cup , it was a rather more dramatic and eventful clash in the semi-finals, the first time England had reached that far in the competition since their win in In summer , the process of German reunification had advanced far, with the Deutsche Mark being introduced in the East two days before the semifinals on 3 July.
The England team had started the event poorly and had not been expected to reach that stage of the competition, but in the game they could match the stronger German team, managed by Franz Beckenbauer.
The Germans took the lead in the 59th minute when a free-kick from Andreas Brehme deflected off Paul Parker and over goalkeeper Peter Shilton.
Gary Lineker equalised in the 80th minute, and then David Platt had a goal ruled out in extra time. The result was thus decided by a penalty shoot-out —the England team's first—which West Germany won 4—3 after misses from Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle.
West Germany went on to beat Argentina in the final. The match stayed heavily in the English popular consciousness — not simply for the football and the dramatic manner of the defeat, but also for the reaction of star player Paul Gascoigne to receiving a yellow card.
His second of the tournament, his realisation that this would see him suspended for the final should England make it prompted him to burst into tears on the pitch.
Said The Observer in , "There are half a dozen images that define this decade of change, which help to show why football widened its appeal.
First, and most important, is the sight of Paul Gascoigne crying into his England shirt after being booked in the World Cup semi-final against West Germany.
Unaggressive and emotional, a billboard image that helped to start an apparently unstoppable surge in popularity for the national team.
Despite this rehabilitation of the image of football aided by the English national team's success in the tournament, the narrow defeat by Germany helped to increase the antipathy felt towards the German team and the German nation in general.
Mark Perryman wrote in "How could we expect to beat mighty West Germany, who had only narrowly lost the final four years previously?
To my mind it is the fact that we so nearly did, then lost in the penalty shoot-out that explains the past 16 years of an increasingly bitter rivalry.
Germany was reunited in October For the DFB team, few things changed apart from players previously capped for East Germany becoming eligible for the united German team.
This made little difference to the tone and emotion of the rivalry. England's first match against the unified Germany since was a friendly in at Wembley, which the Germans won 1—0.
Five years later, at the European Championships , England played a unified German team for the first time in a competitive fixture, when they met in the semi-finals.
Like the World Cup, the tournament was being held in England, and the semi-final was played at Wembley Stadium.
England's fans and team were confident, particularly after wins in the group stage over Scotland 2—0 and the Netherlands 4—1 and their first ever penalty shoot-out victory, over Spain , in the quarter-finals.
So vivid were the memories of for England fans that a media clamour ensued for England to wear red jerseys, instead of the unfamiliar-looking grey away kit that had been launched earlier that year as England had not submitted details of any red kit to UEFA before the tournament, this was never going to be permitted, and England did wear grey.
The build-up to the game was soured, however, by headlines in English tabloid newspapers which were regarded by many as overly nationalistic, and even racist in tone, as they had also been before the previous match against Spain.
Particularly controversial was the Daily Mirror ' s headline "Achtung! For You Fritz, ze Euro 96 Championship is over", accompanied by a mock article aping a report of the declaration of war between the two nations in The editor of the paper, Piers Morgan , subsequently apologised for the headline, particularly as it was at least partially blamed for violence following England's defeat, including a riot in Trafalgar Square.
England took the lead in only the third minute, through tournament top scorer Alan Shearer , but in the 16th minute Stefan Kuntz equalised, and despite many close shots and a disallowed goal from the Germans, the score remained level at 1—1 until the end of extra time.
The match was settled by another penalty shoot-out, as in , and although this time all five of England's initial penalty-takers were successful, so were all five German players.
The shoot-out carried on to "sudden death" kicks, with Gareth Southgate missing for England and Andreas Möller scoring for Germany to put the hosts out.
As in , Germany went on to win the tournament. Also the FA cancelled a friendly with Germany as it was pencilled for 20th April as it coincided Adolf Hitler 's th birthday and played at the Olympiastadion in Berlin the venue for the controversial Summer Olympics.
England and Germany were drawn to meet each other in the first round group stage of the European Championship , held jointly by Belgium and the Netherlands, with the England—Germany game taking place in Charleroi in Belgium.
Before the game, played on 17 June , there were violent incidents involving England fans in the town centre, although these were mostly brief and there were no violent confrontations with German fans.
Nonetheless, reporting of the violence did to a degree overshadow the match result in some media coverage. The match itself was a scrappy affair that lacked the drama of many of the previous encounters, with England sneaking a 1—0 win thanks to a second-half header by striker Alan Shearer.
There was enthusiastic celebration of this result in England, particularly as this was the first time that England had won a competitive match against Germany since the World Cup final.
The German reaction was more pessimistic. Rounding up the German media coverage, The Guardian reported: "'0—1! Germany weeps.
Is it all over? In the event, both England and Germany lost their final group matches and both were knocked out in the first round, finishing third and fourth respectively in their group, which was the worst German result in a tournament since the World Cup , while England had already experienced that multiple times in the two previous decades.
England's home match against Germany was played on Saturday 7 October , and was significant as it was the last international fixture ever to be played at the old Wembley Stadium, before it was demolished and rebuilt.
England lost 1—0 to a German free kick scored by Dietmar Hamann. Half-time neared, England were a goal down and a sizeable section of the crowd sullied the ever-dampening occasion.
The result prompted the immediate resignation of England manager Kevin Keegan , and by the time the return match was played at the Olympic Stadium in Munich on 1 September , England were now managed by their first ever foreign coach, Sven-Göran Eriksson.
Expectations on the English side were low, but they surprisingly won the game 5—1 with a hat-trick from striker Michael Owen , and eventually qualified for the World Cup as the winners of their group.
During the game the father of German coach Rudi Völler suffered a heart attack inside the stadium, but was successfully resuscitated.
Some Germans were shocked by the scale of the defeat, with former striker Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stating that "I have never seen such a terrible defeat This is a new Waterloo for us.
England only reached the quarter-finals. Both teams were defeated by the competition winners, Brazil. The two teams did not meet in the next major contests, Euro and World Cup.
Germany suffered a second elimination in Euro group play, England avoided a showdown with Germany in the last 16 by holding Sweden to a draw and finishing at the top of their group , and England did not qualify for Euro England and Germany next played on 22 August , in a friendly at the newly-rebuilt Wembley Stadium.
England surprisingly lost the match 2—1, their first defeat at the new Wembley, as Germany, following the unexpectedly successful World Cup, was still rebuilding the national team with a new generation and many inexperienced players.
Germany won the match 4—1, knocking England out and advancing into the quarter-finals. This was the greatest defeat England ever suffered in their World Cup history.
In the 38th minute, a shot by Frank Lampard controversially bounced off the crossbar well into the goal and back out again with Germany leading only 2—1.
However, neither the referee Jorge Larrionda nor the linesman saw it pass over the line. In Germany it was perceived as "payback" for the goal of As of the November friendly which ended in a goalless draw, England have yet to beat Germany in a FIFA-sanctioned match at Wembley Stadium, a record which dates back to Following Germany's 1—0 win over England at Wembley in November , German tabloid Bild humorously declared on its front cover that "Wembley is now German".
The German women's league is considered one of the strongest in the world, until the end of the —14 season out of a possible 13 Champions League titles, German clubs have won eight.
By contrast, Arsenal is the only English side to have won the competition, doing so in The German women's team is more popular in Germany than the English women's team is in England.
Germany matches are televised on national television and attract millions of viewers. The World Cup quarterfinal between Germany and Japan attracted over 17 million viewers,  while England women's matches struggle to even make it into television schedules.
England's group games in the World Cup were watched by up to four million viewers on German television, but less than a million on BBC , which means even with no German involvement, England games are at this point more popular in Germany than in the country the England team actually represents.
England has not won a major title, their best result being Euro runners up in women's Euro and in Euro Meanwhile, Germany's women have won two World Cups, and ,  and a total of eight European Championships in the years of , , , , , , and Together with the three Euro wins and the four World Cup wins of the men's team, Germany counts 17 major tournament titles, while England has one major tournament title so far.
Germany may beat us at our national sport today, but that would be only fair. We beat them twice at theirs. Since World War II , Britain has considered itself a rival to Germany in many areas, such as automobile production , naval forces , trade and economy  —this rivalry has also permeated into football.
English football fans often deem Germany to be their traditional football rival and care more about this rivalry than those with other countries, such as Scotland , Argentina or even Australia.
In the run-up to any football match against Germany, many English tabloids publish articles that contain references to the Second World War, such as calling their opposition derogatory terms such as " krauts " or " hun ".
England's defeat of Germany in the World Cup has been often voted by the English as their greatest ever sporting moment,  and the 5—1 victory in has also regularly placed highly.
As far back as the s, the footballing rivalry between England and Germany has been considered mainly an English phenomenon; this has been observed by several commentators of both English and German origin.
In June , British comedian Stephen Fry stated on the BBC show QI that, unlike the English, German football fans do not care about their team's loss at the World Cup final and may not even remember that they had made it that far.
Instead, German fans consider their rivalry with the Netherlands to be their traditional footballing rivalry and care more about the matches against them, such as the FIFA World Cup final.
Following their 5—1 loss in , many German fans were not particularly concerned, instead revelling in the Netherlands ' defeat by the Republic of Ireland the same day.
In , during the lead-up to World Cup match, journalist Marina Hyde remarked in The Guardian that the rivalry between the England and Germany football teams was "quite obviously an illusion, existing only in the minds of those wishful to the point of insanity — which is to say, the English".
She added: "In a world that has changed bewilderingly in recent decades, England losing to Germany in major tournaments is one of the few certainties.
Beck described Germany's ambivalence to the rivalry, saying that "as far as the Germans are concerned, Sunday's game is nothing more than another sporting contest".
However, it would of course also be false to say that there is no rivalry at all between Germany and England; for one thing, the very fact that the English perceive it to be such cannot go unnoticed, for another, there is the long-standing quarrel about the " Wembley goal " only somewhat silenced since a clear goal was not awarded to the English in Germany vs.
England matches, even friendlies, are always considered highly important sporting events though of course, the tradition and, usually, the quality of both the teams may account for most of that , going so far that a popular radioplay series mocks people in love as "looking deep into each other's eyes even if a Germany vs.
England match is on TV". German teams played a number of games against English teams between and The first of these, encompassing an official Football Association tour of Germany and Austria in , and a reciprocal tour of England by a German select squad, saw the England teams feature a mix of amateurs and professionals playing against German sides organised by regional associations, even after the foundation of the DFB in The games played between and saw the official German national team, organised by the DFB, play against the England Amateur side.
Also, different flags were applied. England played four Friendly matches against the East Germany national football team which was fielded by the DFV in the German Democratic Republic which existed from to Overview:.
As well as the rivalry between the national sides, English and German club teams have also met on numerous occasions in the various European club competitions.
Having recently missed out on the Bundesliga title to their rivals Borussia Dortmund , Bayern Munich suffered defeat at the Allianz Arena ; a game dubbed "Finale dahoam" Bavarian for "final at home" as it marked the second time that any team played the tournament's final at their home ground.
The game  ended as a 1—1 draw after added extra time aet before being decided 4—3 on penalties. Bayern Munich seemed like the more dominant of the two sides throughout, but an overtly defensive   Chelsea team "parked the bus" , preventing many chances which eventually led them to their first Champions League win.
Perhaps the most noteworthy encounter was the UEFA Champions League Final between Manchester United and Bayern Munich, during which the English club were trailing 1—0 until injury time, then scoring two goals to win 2—1.
This result was celebrated by many in England who were not United fans as being another English victory over Germany. Leeds would eventually eliminate a German team VfB Stuttgart in unexpected and bizarre circumstances.
After the Germans had qualified, in the first round of the —93 competition, on the away goals rule, the return leg was awarded by UEFA 3—0 to Leeds United because Stuttgart fielded an extra foreigner, thus infringing the European competition rules that were in place at the time.
A replay was ordered as the aggregate stood at 3—3. Leeds won the replay at Barcelona 's Camp Nou 2—1. In , a young and depleted Leeds United side, managed by David O'Leary , eliminated Munich from the Champions League beating them home and away in the preliminary round before reaching the semi-final.
These were against the likes of Borussia Mönchengladbach , 1. Liverpool's win against Borussia Mönchengladbach in Rome stands out for one special reason.
It started a sequence of six consecutive English European Cup victories each time involving the elimination of a German club in the latter stages.
The English hold the upper hand in club football encounters, although there were notable German wins such as Bayern's revenge over Manchester United F.
Both English sides exacted revenge over Leverkusen in subsequent Champions League encounters. Borussia Dortmund beat Manchester United 1—0 both home and away in the semifinal of the —97 UEFA Champions League which they won, United having been guilty of squandering numerous chances in both legs, especially the return leg at Old Trafford.
English club victories were often celebrated in a manner which evoked memories of the War. The outspoken Brian Clough is on record boasting that he never lost to a German side and that he took satisfaction from this for what the Germans had done to his father during the war.
Clough memorably led Nottingham Forest to a 1—0 win in Cologne following a spectacular 3—3 draw at the City Ground in the semifinal en route to Forest winning their first European Cup.
The following year, a Forest side minus star player, Trevor Francis , defeated Hamburg in the final by employing an Italian style catenaccio based on dogged defence and brilliant goalkeeping by Peter Shilton.
Liverpool have a tremendous record against German opposition, from both sides of the East-West divide, and once famously hit Munich 8—0 in an old Fairs Cup game, a treatment meted out to Hamburg 6—0 when winning the first of their three European Super Cups, the second also against German opposition in the form of FC Bayern Munich.
Liverpool's encounters with Bayern and Borussia Mönchengladbach known in Germany as the Gladbacher , the latter a force to be reckoned with in the 70s, are memorable.
Bayern had hit Coventry City for six in a previous round. Liverpool won the first leg 3—0 with an Alun Evans hat-trick and drew 1—1 in Munich. The most important encounter between the two sides was in the European Cup semi-final of when a depleted Liverpool were held to a goalless draw at Anfield and then drew 1—1 in Munich.
Gerd Müller used to be the holder of that record from until it was broken by Ronaldo in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
