Republic of Ireland record stunning victory over stuttering Germany

A wonderful strike by Shane Long on the 70th minute was enough for Republic of Ireland to pull off the great win against Germany.

DUBLIN -- Three thoughts on the Republic of Ireland's stunning 1-0 victory Thursday over defending world champions Germany:

1. International football alive in Dublin

There have been only a few fleeting glimpses of excitement in a less-than-inspiring Euro 2016 qualifying story during the past 13 months, but this electrifying night in Dublin was the most scintillating yet.

Shane Long's dramatic winning goal means his nation are now assured of a playoff place next month at the very least, and if they...

Klinsmann struggled at Bayern but he laid foundations for today's success

The ESPN FC panel discuss if Jurgen Klopp's attacking style of play will fit in at Liverpool, if Jose Mourinho's antics are bad for the game and what will happen to Jurgen Klinsmann if the USMNT don't beat Mexico.

The following is an excerpt from Raphael Honigstein's new book, "Das Reboot: How German Football Reinvented Itself and Conquered the World." In it, Honigstein winds the clocks back to 2008, when Jurgen Klinsmann was placed in charge of Bayern Munich but found the going tough in the face of an unlikely challenge.

The idea that players could be developed, along with a team, into something that was bigger than the constituent parts was music to the ears of Bayern Munich bosses. The perennial Bundesliga...

Jurgen Klopp's rise from Bundesliga 2. to one of the most-wanted managers

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why Jurgen Klopp is a better option for Liverpool than Carlo Ancelotti.
Gab Marcotti of ESPN FC believes that Jurgen Klopp would help to bring life back into Liverpool should he end up being hired as the manager.

The following is an excerpt from Raphael Honigstein's new book, Das Reboot: How German Football Reinvented Itself and Conquered the World.

In it, the clock is turned back more than a decade to look at the rise of a little-known manager named Jurgen Klopp.

Bild feted 'Kloppo' as the 'Harry Potter' of German football. He wore metal-rimmed glasses and the same youthful haircut as the wizard's apprentice, not to mention that him getting little Mainz into the Bundesliga reeked of magic. 'There's no...

Turkish Super Lig offers German footballers more than just big wages

Harald Schumacher moved to Fenerbahce in 1988, paving the way for countless German internationals who would later join the Turkish league.

In February 1987, Cologne and West Germany goalkeeper Harald "Toni" Schumacher made a mistake. He published a book.

His tell-all memoirs about life in the Bundesliga were filled with all the right ingredients -- mainly drugs in the form of doping, sex and in-fighting -- to make it a bestseller. It also derailed his career.

Schumacher was fired by Cologne and lost his place in the national team. Suddenly he was virtually unemployable and the only club willing to take him on were Schalke. The...

Mario Gotze promised a special treat to the 10 millionth person to "like" his Facebook page, and the Germany and Bayern Munich midfielder delivered on his promise.

Gotze baked a cake for one Bettina H. It was a banana-chocolate cake and, according to the Facebook post, Gotze's first effort. He also included one of his Germany jerseys in the care package.

GLASGOW -- Morning had barely broken as the German national team and an entourage of officials, VIPs and media set out to the airport through the Glasgow greyness. But the night before, which saw the world champions beat Scotland 3-2, was already consigned to history, a footnote to a story that will take a further nine months to begin in earnest.

The one goal that separated the visitors and the resilient hosts, in a curious match of deafening noise, strange goals and the odd sublime moment, meant...
