East Germany 1 – 0 West Germany


Let’s not get bogged down in the history of Germany and how this happened. We’re trying to keep it light. Given that Germany was split from 1949 to 1990, the fact that this is the only meeting between the two national teams is pretty incredible. And what a victory, given the history. I imagine Jürgen Sparwasser never had to buy another beer in his life after this. And at the end of the day, Clive, it’s communism one, capitalism nil.
