The Big Story of the Four World Cup triumphs
•1954 •1974 •1990 •2014
What we all dreamed of has come true. On 13th July 2014 in the tradition-steeped Maracanã-Stadium in Rio, the German national football team became world champions for the fourth time, after success in 1954, 1974 and 1990. They beat Argentina in a hard-fought match thanks to Mario Götze’s dream goal. No European team had previously achieved that feat on South American soil. The DFB’s team sparked huge celebrations at home with their high-class athleticism and sportsmanlike performances; they reinforced the sense of togetherness and garnered support throughout the world for our homeland. Football Made in Germany has been a hallmark of quality since long before the fourth victory. This generously furnished illustrated book attempts to cover the more than 60 successful years of titles and triumphs of the German Federal Eagle: From the “Miracle in Bern”, which restored to Germans their feeling of self-worth, to the summer fairy-tale-come-true in Brazil. More than 600 pages of pictures re-kindle memories and answer many questions. A documentation of contemporary history.
