  • Post war East Germany played seperately from West Germany until reunification in 1990. Their first match was a 3-0 loss to Poland in 1951. They qualified for the 1974 World Cup in West Germany and were drawn in the same group as their neighbours which resulted in a very politically charged encounter that the East won. Both qualified for the next stage; the West went on to win the competition whilst the East were beaten in the second group stage. England played East Germany four times. Twice in Leipzig and twice at Wembley. England won three and the fourth was drawn.
