Brazil and Germany are countries that often meet in the World Cup. Both teams do have a long and sweet history in the world cup. Both teams are already unfortunate in the World Cup arena. Here are four of their best games during the four-year event. GERMAN VS ENGLAND (1990) The record of the German national team in the World Cup is shiny. Since 1966, “Der Panzer” has undergone 83 matches with a record 50 wins, 16 defeats and 17 draws. The famous German media, Der Spiegel, mentioned, there are four games that are categorized as the most interesting. The match was a German meeting with France at the 1982 World Cup, against Mexico 1986, versus England 1990, and Argentina in 2006. The game against England in Turin, Italy, July 3, 1990, was called a thrilling fight. England are favored as champions with legendary goalkeeper Peter Shilton, team captain Stuart Pearce, controversial Paul Gascogine and 1986 World Cup goalscorer Gary Lineker. The first half ended 0-0 despite more England chances. In the 66th minute, Andreas Brehme broke into Shilton’s goal with a header from a cross-ball pass.

The German goalkeeper turned out to be superior under the bar to make a 4-3 victory. On the defeat, Lineker commented, “Football is game 11 against 11, but Germany always win.” Germany champions after beating Argentina 1-0 in the final. GERMAN VS FRANCE (1982) France is a team that often wins against Germany in a friendly match. However, in the official FIFA match, Germany is even superior. The 1982 World Cup semi-final was remembered as Germany’s sensational victory. Instead, the duel was always remembered as a French nightmare. Germany took the lead after Pierre Littbarski’s goal in the 17th minute. France equalized through a penalty of legendary player Michel Platini.

However, Germany only occupies the runner-up position because of losing to host Italy, 1-3, in the final. BRAZIL VS UNION SOVIET (1958) Brazil is a team that is always respected opponent. Throughout 20 times the World Cup, not even the team “Samba” absent compete. Calling the history of Brazil, there must be a big name Edison Arantes do Nascimento or better known as Pele. The era of 1958 to 1970 witnessed Pele’s greatness in winning three world titles for his country. Pele was 18 years old when he debuted at Sweden’s 1958 World Cup. He is present with another star who is not less shining, namely Manuel Francisco dos Santos or better known by the nickname Garrincha which means small bird. Pele and Garrincha were only relegated to the third party when Brazil met the Soviet Union. Do not get me wrong, the Soviets are the first world soccer team to combine scientific knowledge in sports. Garrincha and Pele steal the show with excellent dribbling ability. In just three minutes, Edvaldo Vava had scored from Garrincha’s pass. The goal was recorded as the most memorable three-minute memorable goal in football. In the second half, Vava scored again for Brazil’s 2-0 victory. Brazil became world champion for the first time in 1958 after beating Sweden in the final with a score of 5-2. During Pele’s duet with Garrincha, until 1996, Brazil had never lost BRAZIL VS NETHERLANDS (1994) Brazil’s match against Germany at the 2002 World Cup is interesting, but it has not been considered the best match yet. Beyond the era of Pele and Garrincha, Brazil’s fight against the Netherlands in the 1994 World Cup quarter-finals of the United States in 1994 was considered sensational, even identified as a too late final party. Brazil coach Carlos Alberto Pereira made a 5-3-2 formation combined with a 3-5-2 attacking model. While the Dutch under coach Dick Advocaat apply a typical Dutch pattern, total football, 4-3-3. From the first minute, both teams demonstrated attacking football. A lot of chances were created, but there was no goal in the first half. After the break, Romario thrilled the Dutch goalkeeper who guarded Ed de Goey. Brazil added a 2-0 lead through Bebeto, 10 minutes later. The Netherlands was getting tougher and finally narrowed the goal difference after Dennis Bergkamp made a beautiful goal from a narrow angle. Aron Winter then managed to equalize in the 76th minute that made the Dallas Cotton Bowl Stadium rumble. However, five minutes later, Claudio Blanco silenced Dutch supporters by scoring from a free shot. Brazil beat Sweden in the semi-finals 1-0 and beat Italy in a drab final on 3-2 penalties after playing 0-0 for 120 minutes. (DCW)
