The Battle For Germany's Starting Goalkeeper Spot Is Now Being Waged In Public

The Battle For Germany's Starting Goalkeeper Spot Is Now Being Waged In Public

Germany have a problem—one many national teams would kill for, but a problem nonetheless. Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen is one of the very best goalies in the world, and yet he can’t get any gametime for his national team. Manuel Neuer, who not that long ago was handily the game’s single best keeper, starts in goal and captains the German national team, even though he’s no longer...

Sweden Snaps 24-Year Losing Streak Against Germany With 2-1 Victory

Sweden Snaps 24-Year Losing Streak Against Germany With 2-1 Victory

Sweden entered their quarterfinal match up with Germany sick and tired of hearing about this damn losing streak that has plagued their national team for nearly two-and-a-half decades, but it’s hard to ignore something like that given the history between the two sides. Since 1995, Germany had defeated Sweden in every single major tournament they’ve faced off in before today. This streak...

Lisa Byington And Cat Whitehill Bust Out Lazy Tropes About African Teams For Their Germany-Nigeria Commentary

Commentating on live sports for a national television audience can be a herculean task, but it’s a lot easier if you decide to rely on tired racial stereotypes to fill the dead air—as Fox’s Lisa Byington and Cat Whitehill discovered on Saturday.

The issues started early for the broadcasting team, with Byington getting things started less than 10 minutes into a match by parroting what the...

What Do Germany Have To Do To Get Anyone At Home To Pay Attention?

What Do Germany Have To Do To Get Anyone At Home To Pay Attention?

BERLIN — “We play for a nation that doesn’t even know our name.” So begins a video released last month by the German national women’s soccer team, right in time for the start of the Women’s World Cup. Die Nationalelf, two-time World Cup winners and one of the favorites in the tournament, was packing for their trip to France, where they’ve already gone 2-0-0, sitting atop their group and...

This Isn't The Best Germany Ever, But They Can Still Beat Anyone

This Isn't The Best Germany Ever, But They Can Still Beat Anyone
2019 Women's World CupPlayers to watch, dark horses, upset opportunities, and everything else you need to know for the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.  

For a normal national team, Germany’s recent run of relative success would be cause for celebration: quarterfinalists at both the 2017 Euros and 2011 World Cup, with a semifinals appearance at the 2015 World Cup and a 2013 Euro title. Oh,...

Germany's Small But Devoted Group Of Knicks Fans Has Plenty Of Takes And Hates James Dolan

BERLIN — As he watched the New York Knicks play on TV in the middle of March, Max Thümer explained why he had, weeks before, vowed to stop watching the team.

It was the Kristaps Porzingis trade .

“I’ve just been thinking about why I spend so much of my rare leisure time to watch a franchise and organization that’s totally full of shit,” said Thümer, a 35-year-old who runs local kindergartens,...

Christian Pulisic Finally Played And Scored The Type Of Goal That Made Him Worth $73 Million

Christian Pulisic hasn’t been having the best time in this, his final season at Germany’s Borussia Dortmund before his record-breaking transfer to Chelsea becomes official. He had only made two substitute appearances for the Black and Yellow since the transfer was announced, and though he did get a start in Tuesday’s DFB Pokal cup match against Werder Bremen, he’s not really in Dortmund’s...

Woman Who Coaches Men's Soccer Team Responds To Sexist Question: "I Pick My Team On Dick Length"

Woman Who Coaches Men's Soccer Team Responds To Sexist Question: "I Pick My Team On Dick Length"

In late December, German soccer club BV Cloppenburg handed the reins of their fifth-division men’s team to Imke Wübbenhorst, making her the first woman to coach a German men’s team at that high of a level. You could probably imagine some of the moronic questions Wübbenhorst has had to field in light of her new gig, though you probably wouldn’t have predicted the irreverence and hilarity with...

Northern Ireland Fans Had A Great Time Despite Getting Stomped By Germany

Northern Ireland Fans Had A Great Time Despite Getting Stomped By Germany

Above, you can see a veritable sea of Northern Ireland fans in the Parc des Princes for their country’s game against Germany earlier today. Even though their team went down a goal early and were completely dominated, the fans in green nevertheless had a great time singing along with the “Will Grigg’s on Fire” song that has taken the tournament by storm.

Here’s another clip from the...

An American Surfer Goes Rogue To Claim The Baltic Sea's "Last Wave"

An American Surfer Goes Rogue To Claim The Baltic Sea's "Last Wave"

BERLIN — There’s this picture of Ira Mowen that pretty much sums up the quest he’s been on for seven years. In it, he’s standing mid-frame, gazing into the lens of the camera – or the phone, whatever. He looks like he’s just waking up, or he’s stoned, or he’s recovering from a sneeze, because he’s got that countenance that sometimes crosses the faces of people and makes them look, fleetingly,...

Mix Diskerud Bicycle-Kicks In Goal; USMNT Is Kinda Hanging With Germany

Hmmm, the USMNT maintaining possession, playing it out from the back, overloading zones with intelligent off-ball movement, good first touches, and a tying goal that wasn’t totally against the run of play while facing one of the world’s best? Maybe we were on to something ...

IT'S REALLY TRUE, AMERICA WON FIFA, WE ARE THE BEST!

Right now I couldn’t care less if this was some pointless...

German Soccer Player Bites Off (And Maybe Eats?) Chunk Of Opponent's Nose

German Soccer Player Bites Off (And Maybe Eats?) Chunk Of Opponent's Nose

An amateur soccer match in Germany between SV Preussen Eiberg and ESG 99/06 II featured six goals, one red card, and one mangled nose after an Eiberg player went all Luis Suárez and chewed off a hunk of an ESG player’s face.

The Eiberg player—whose name, along with the victim’s, is being withheld because of German privacy laws—performed the act of cannibalism in the 69th minute of the match,...

Bayern Munich President Brutally And Inexplicably Owns Mesut Ozil

Germany and Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil announced his retirement from international soccer on Sunday, citing racism from fans, criticism of a photo he took with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and unfair scapegoating by German’s top soccer officials. For no obvious reason, Bayern Munich president and 1974 West German World Cup winner Uli Hoeness did his best to prove Ozil’s last...

Mesut Özil Quits International Soccer In Letter Decrying Racism And Unfair Double Standards

Mesut Özil Quits International Soccer In Letter Decrying Racism And Unfair Double Standards

Mesut Özil retired from German international soccer Sunday, in a lengthy statement released on Twitter. Özil says the fallout from a photo he took with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in May lays bare a kind of racism he’s subjected to as a German with Turkish heritage, and that “enough is enough.”

Özil isn’t the first athlete of Turkish heritage to see his professional life subsumed...

Please Enjoy Bayern Munich Dressed Up And Boozing For Oktoberfest

It’s that time of year again, when all of Bavaria breaks out their finest lederhosen and dirndl skirts, and prepares to lift krug after enormous krug of the finest German beers in celebration of Oktoberfest. Bayern Munich’s players and coaching staff are no exception, and so we have loads of pictures of them squeezed into their funny looking traditional German garb and downing liters of...

Jérôme Boateng's Volley Opens Scoring For Germany

Germany’s dominance looks to continue as Jérôme Boateng hammered home a 25-yard volley to put the reigning world champions up 1-0 early on Slovakia. Maybe it’s not as flashy as Shaqiri , but impressive nonetheless.

Fraud-Ass Mexico Dodged A Bullet Today

Fraud-Ass Mexico Dodged A Bullet Today

After looking commanding in an opening-day beatdown of the World Cup’s defending champs, then slick and deadly in an easy victory over South Korea, Mexico proceeded to completely shit the bed today. All they needed to do against Sweden was not lose by multiple goals, which seemed like something between a manageable objective and a virtual certainty given Sweden’s plodding front line and...

South Korea's Performance Is Why The World Cup Exists

South Korea's Performance Is Why The World Cup Exists

If there’s one thing that will really stick with me from this morning’s World Cup action, it isn’t Mexico spending 90 minutes stress-barfing all over themselves. Neither is it the shock of defending champion Germany failing to get out of the group stage. What I’ll most likely remember long after this World Cup crowns a winner and for years after that is this image:

I can only wonder at what...

South Korea Killed Germany And Tossed The Dead Body Out Of The World Cup

South Korea Killed Germany And Tossed The Dead Body Out Of The World Cup

Germany, the reigning champions of world soccer and one of the three huge favorites to win this World Cup, have been knocked out of the tournament at the group stage for the first time in history after losing to South Korea by a score of 2-0. This is absolutely insane.

Pretty much all Germany had to do to make it out of the group was beat South Korea, on paper the worst team in their group....
