Die Deutsche Mannschaft

Since 1908, the German national football team has represented Germany in international competition. In the past hundred years, this team has won the World Cup four times (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014) and had highest Elo ranking in a total of six years, with a current ranking of 6th. From 1945 to 1990, due to the existence of the German Democratic Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany, there were two national teams. This project intends to only focus on the players who were on the national football teams after reunification in 1990.
