Europeans clash – Germany Vs. England in FIFA World Cup

Who does not love a game of football where the players combine agility with speed while tackling opposing players? With FIFA World Cup 2010 on, the football fever takes on a new meaning. The event opened with an inauguration ceremony made colorful with such celebrated music artistes like Alicia Keys, Shakira, Black Eyed Peas, John Legend and Angelique Kidjo performing at a concert on June 10 in South Africa. This year, the football lovers have witnessed some rare thrills. A fast-paced action is awaited on Sunday, June 27 when England meets old rival Germany in a Stage 2 match.
The English are not just masters at sophistication. England’s national football team is the jointoldest franchise in the world. This is a distinction matched only by Scotland with the two playing against each other in the world’s first international football match in 1872. Being one of the United Kingdom’s Home Nations, FIFA statutes allow the England football team to compete in all key professional tournaments, except Olympic Games. Head Coach Fabio Capello trains the present team which plays in the home ground of Wembley Stadium in London. England won the FIFA World Cup in 1966 thus becoming one of the seven national teams to do so. In 1990, they finished the World Cup with a fourth place. For the UEFA European Championship, they reached the semifinals twice in 1968 and 1996. England’s most memorable encounters have been against Germany and Scotland.
The German national football team is recognized as one of the three most successful national teams at international tournaments. Germany has been the winner of three World Cup tournaments and three European Championships thus being one of the three most successful national teams to achieve this feat. They have earned second place in four World Cup championships and three European Championships. Germany is listed as the only country to win both the men’s and women’s World Cups.
