Germany national football team - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Germany national football team (German: Die deutsche Fußballnationalmannschaft) is the football team that has represented Germany in international competition since 1908.[2] It is governed by the German Football Association (Deutscher Fußball-Bund), founded in 1900.[6][7] From 1950 to 1990, it was essentially the team of West Germany,[8] as the DFB is based in Frankfurt, located in the former West Germany. Under Allied occupation and division, two other separate national teams were also recognized by FIFA: the Saarland team (1950–1956) and the East German team (1952–1990). Both have been absorbed along with their records[9][10] by the current national team. The official name and code "Germany FR (FRG)" was shortened to "Germany (GER)" in 1990.

Germany is one of the three most successful national teams in international competitions, having won a total of three World Cups (1954, 1974, 1990) and three European Championships (1972, 1980, 1996).[6] They have also been runners-up three times in the European Championships, four times in the World Cup, and have won a further four third places.[6] East Germany won Olympic Gold in 1976.[11] Germany is the only nation to have won both the men's and women's World Cups. The current coaching staff of the national team include head coach Joachim Löw, assistant coach Hans-Dieter Flick, goalkeeper coach Andreas Köpke, athletic coach Shad Forsythe, athletic coach Oliver Bartlett, scout Urs Siegenthaler, sporting director Robin Dutt, and team manager Oliver Bierhoff.[12]

Between 1899 and 1901, prior to the formation of a national team, there were five unofficial international matches between different German and English selection teams, which all ended as large defeats for the German teams. Eight years after the establishment of the German Football Association (DFB), the first official match of the Germany national football team[13] was played on 5 April 1908, against Switzerland in Basel, with the Swiss winning 5–3.[2] Coincidentally, the first match after World War I in 1920, the first match after World War II in 1950 when Germany was still banned from most international competitions, and the first match in 1990 with former East German players were all against Switzerland as well. Germany's first championship title was even won in Switzerland.

German language in Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The German language (both as an official language and as a minority language) is spoken in a number of countries and territories in Europe (Deutscher Sprachraum). To cover this speech area they are often referred to as the German speaking countries, the German speaking area, or equivalently German-speaking Europe (the few overseas territories which speak German are not commonly included in the concept).

German is the main language of about 90–95 million people in Europe (as of 2004), or 13.3% of all Europeans, being the second most spoken native language in Europe after Russian (144 million speakers), above French (66.5 million speakers in 2004) and English (64.2 million speakers in 2004).

The European countries with German-speaking majorities are Germany (95%, 78.3 million), Austria (89%, 7.4 million), Switzerland (65%, 4.6 million) ("D-A-CH"), Luxembourg (0.48 million) and Liechtenstein (0.03 million).
