The Germany national football team (German: Die deutsche Fußballnationalmannschaft) is the football team that has represented Germany in international competition since 1908. It is governed by the German Football Association (Deutscher Fußball-Bund), which was founded in 1900.

From 1950 to 1990, it was more or less the team of West Germany as the DFB is based in Frankfurt, located in the former West Germany. Under Allied occupation and division, two other separate national teams were also recognized by FIFA: the Saarland team (1950–1956) and the East German team (1952–1990). Both have been absorbed along with their records (caps and goal scorers) by the current national team.

Germany is historically one of the three most successful national teams at international competitions, having won a total of FOUR World Cups and three European Championships. They have also been runners-up three times in the European Championships, four times in the World Cup, and further won four 3rd places. East Germany won Olympic Gold in 1976. Germany is the only nation to have won both the men’s and women’s World Cups (Source: Wikipedia).

Up to November 19 of 2019, the overall record of Germany is:

  • 961 matches.
  • 559 wins.
  • 195 draws.
  • 207 defeats.
  • Goals: 2.161 – 1.127 (+1.034)

    Thank you my friend! I love all your videos and you have to keep your incredible work. The least I could do is to share your blog and channel, since most of the videos I’m sharing on this site are from your posts. Certainly this blog wouldn’t be the same without your support.

    Hello impromptuinc,
    your blog is fantastic! The data and the photos are amazing, there are a lot of photos I haven’t seen before. Especially from the early matches (1908-1914). Well done! 🙂

    (by the way I’m Schnipp08 from YouTube, maybe you know my channel?)

      Thanks a lot for your kind words, I didn’t know your channel, thanks for the info too. This blog is the result of the efforts of many people around the world, I’m just a compiler. Mach’s gut!

  6. Hi there.

    I’m founder of http://www.walkedthru.com – which is actually a blog community. We’re currently recruiting bloggers, of all subjects and professions to contribute.

    I think your blog, Germany’ national football team, is a fantastic example of what we are looking for – it is fun, specific, informative, and well written, with great imagery.

    We also feel it would be a fantastic addition to our Newcastle united FC, upcoming Paraguay Football blog and other Sports WalkThru’s.

    So with that I would love to invite you to visit our community, and to ask you if you would like us to list your blog under WalkedThru German (Soccer) perhaps?

    Feel free to contact me directly.

    Hi there,
    I stumbled upon your blog and I’m really fascinated by the amount and the accuracy of data you provide here. Also, the design of your blog has just given me some ideas that I could implement on my blog as well. My blog is also about football data, precisely it’s about the matches of FR Yugoslavia, Serbia-Montenegro and Serbia national teams since suspension of the UN sanctions in 1994 until present day. It’s still in a sort of under-construction phase :))

    Anyway, keep up the good work!

    All the best!
