There is no denying the fact that Germany has some of the world’s best football players in the history of the game. Had it not been so, Germany wouldn’t have clutched the title of World Champions for the fourth time in 2014, non-consecutively in the 17 tournaments held. What’s more, it has three titles out of the ten European Championships held till date. Furthermore, it is the only nation to have won both men’s and women’s World Cups. Excepting for the titles, Germany has been first runner-up thrice in European Championships and four times in World Cups till date. The list itself concludes the exemplary performance by German footballing legends, who have time and again done their country proud, with their outstanding performance on field. German football players hold the distinction of having six World Cup medals, including Gold, silver and bronze. Such has been their strong performance and representation of the game that German players have become household names even to those who do not follow football. Names like Miroslav Klose, Gerd Muller, Paul Breitner, Lothar Matthaus, Franz Beckenbauer are legendary to the game of football and Germany. Know more about each of them and many more spectacular football players, their life and their game with this section.
