"The intellectualisation
of football has
always foundered
on a simple problem-
-the players. Doing
all your most
rewarding thinking
with your feet seems
to dull the philo-
sophical impulse.
Unless, of course,
you are Dutch.
According to legend,
Europeans played
a moronic, muscular
version of the world's
game, until Holland
proclaimed its vision
of total football in the
1974 World Cup,
and enlightenment
dawned."

... Germany

The big guy next door has been the biggest rival of the past 40 years. The frustration of the lost World Cup final in 1974 is still alive in the hearts of the Dutch football fans, despite the sweet revenge of 1988. However relations between the two rivals have improved over the last ten years. For a complete record we have considered West Germany as Germany as well. For East Germany there is a seperate record page.
