Football Fever in Africa, Germany won Against Australia

I watched the football game played between Germany and Australia tonight at around 9:00 PM Berlin time. Germany won their first game with the score of 4-0. Podolski made the first goal, followed by Klose, Mueller and Cacau. Wow, that was a very interesting and fantastic game played between these two teams. What else can I say? Congratulations to the Germany’s National Football Team! You did it great guys! I believed they are very happy after winning their first game. Congratulations also to the fans who made it to Africa just to give support to the German team. Good luck for the next games to come and make the best! Here is an information about Germany’s National Football Team;

“The German national football team (German: Die deutsche Fußballnationalmannschaft) is the football team representing the country of Germany in international competition since 1908. It is governed by the German Football Association DFB (Deutscher Fußball-Bund) which was founded in 1900.

From 1950 to 1990, the team was called West Germany in English, as since World War II, the DFB is based in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) which was commonly referred to as West Germany from 1949 to 1990. The DFB continues to field the German national team that had been fully reinstated by FIFA after the 1950 FIFA World Cup, retaining all records and traditions. Under Allied occupation and division, two other separate national teams had also been recognized by FIFA, the Saarland team (1950–1956), and the East German team (1952–1990). Both have been absorbed into the current national team, along with their records (caps and goal scorers). The official name and code “Germany FR (FRG)” was shortened again to “Germany (GER)” in 1990.

Germany is one of the three most successful national teams at international competitions, having won a total of three World Cups and three European championships. They are also one of the most consistent teams. Aside from winning three world and continental titles, they were also runners-up three times in the European Championships, four times in the World Cup and won 3rd place in the World Cup three times as well. East Germany won Olympic Gold in 1976. Germany is the only nation to have won both the men’s and women’s World Cups. more infos here
