Celebrating Germany's improbable run to glory at Italia '90

West Germany celebrate winning the 1990 World Cup.

World Cups can be like politicians; their reputations sometimes improve with the passage of time. Take the 1990 World Cup in Italy, recently honoured through numerous "25 years ago" remembrances published throughout the footballing world.

However, when the spectacle ended -- on July 8, 1990, and with a match Brian Glanville called "probably the worst, most tedious, bad-tempered final in the history of the World Cup" -- the vast majority of people were glad the whole thing was over and agreed...

Mario Gotze throws horrendous first pitch at Los Angeles Dodgers game

This time last year Mario Gotze was a little preoccupied helping Germany to World Cup glory in Brazil. 

It's different this summer for the Bayern Munich midfielder, who is able to relax on holiday in the United States.

But rather than just sitting back on the beach with a pina colada, Goetze has been checking out the Los Angeles Dodgers.

He was even given the honour of throwing the...

Germany youngsters seek to defend U19 title after U21 heartbreak

Portugal thrash Germany to advance to the U21 European Championship.
Germany celebrate during their semifinal win over Austria on their way to winning the European U19 Championships in 2014.

For German football fans, the tournament deluge continues unabated. On Sunday, the European U19 Championship starts in Greece and Germany will be looking to retain the title the team won last summer.

They will be also looking to inject the feelgood factor back into German football following the U21's disastrous 5-0 semifinal defeat against Portugal in the European U21 Championship on June 27.

This U19 competition is not as widely covered as the Euro U21 equivalent but there was a time when it was...

Germany under-21s look to banish past and return to Olympic Games

Relive all the must see moments from a week of U21 European Championship play, including Jesse Lingard's long-range strike for England.
Germany and Italy battle it out at the 1988 Olympic football final in Seoul, South Korea.

When Germany's under-21 side meet hosts Czech Republic at the European Championship on Tuesday night, a draw will be enough for the team to go through to the semifinals. This would also mean that Germany have qualified for the 2016 Summer Olympics men's tournament.

One would think both achievements cannot be too uncommon for a hugely successful football nation like Germany. But they are. In fact, if coach Horst Hrubesch's under-21s reach the last four, it will be a success of historic dimensions.


Jurgen Klinsmann follows familiar format to U.S. national team success

The ESPN FC experts evaluate the United States Men's National team's performance as they defeated the World Champions Germany 2-1.

The last time the U.S. men's national team came to play Germany in a friendly, Jurgen Klinsmann's job was at stake. In March 2006, three months before the World Cup on his team's home soil, the German national manager's approval ratings were at an all-time low.

Die Nationalmannschaft, as the side was then still officially known, had been destroyed 4-1 by Italy two weeks earlier, and the nation had since been gripped by a sense of panic. The California-based Swabian and his newfangled fitness...

Bradley offsets shaky U.S. defense in victory vs. Germany

Brian McBride understands Jurgen Klinsmann's decision to rest Julian Green for the 2015 Gold Cup, but Julie Foudy and Kate Markgraf question the decision after Green only played in 11 matches this season.

Five days after the U.S. beat the Netherlands in Amsterdam, it stunned reigning World Cup champion and current FIFA No. 1 Germany with a 2-1 win Wednesday in Cologne. After surviving a difficult first half -- Mix Diskerud equalized just before halftime after Mario Gotze had given the hosts an early lead -- substitute Bobby Wood played the hero once again. The 22-year-old striker scored his second straight winner off the bench for the U.S., this time in the 87th minute. Here's how the Americans...
