I'm one of those Englishmen who prioritises club far above country, so I've always thought kindly towards the Nationalmannschaft. England-(West) Germany is a great rivalry, though.
Back in the day there was no tv coverage of English football at all over here. Only pre-CL matches and pre-Euroleague (whatever it was called back then). So that's what my judgement is based on.

Anyway, I think your last superb goalie was born pior to 1950 what is a shame. Wasted years with all those Gazzas, Linekers, Beckhams and so on.

And yes, only Holland (maybe Italy because we never win) is bigger than a good old England-Germany matchup.

Peace and keep singing your awesome chants. There's nothing like it.
