Profile: Germany

Olympic Record
Germany’s best performance at the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament came in their most recent appearance, with a bronze medal in 1988. In their three group games in Busan, they saw off China PR and Tunisia before succumbing to pool winners Sweden. A quarter-final defeat of Zambia, courtesy of a Jurgen Klinsmann hat-trick, was followed by a penalty-shootout semi-final defat to a Romario-inspired Brazil. A straightforward 3-0 win against Italy in the Bronze medal match, with Klinsmann again on the scoresheet, saw the Germans pick up a medal at the eighth time of asking.

The Road to Rio
A cagey opening game at the 2015 UEFA U-21 European Championship set the tone for an unconvincing German qualification for Rio. Their 1-1 draw with Serbia was followed by a straightforward victory against Denmark, but their final group match, which secured their passage to Brazil, was a tense 1-1 stalemate against hosts Czech Republic. The semi-final in Olomouc saw the Germans swept aside by their Portuguese counterparts, who cantered to a memorable 5-0 victory. The Nationalmannschaft will be hoping for more consistent performances if they are to mirror their senior side’s 2014 success in the Maracana come 20 August.

Former stars
Richard Hofmann (1928), Wilhelm Simetsreiter (1936), Willi Schroder (1952), Jurgen Klinsmann, Frank Mill and Karl-Heinz Riedle (1988).

The stat
76 – there were almost eight decades between the Germans’ first appearance at the 1912 games and their first medal, a bronze in 1988.

Nigeria battle Germany for Olympics Gold medal match:

Nigeria will face Germany Wednesday for a place in the Gold medal final of the Rio Olympics after both teams won their respective quarterfinals today.

Germany humbled Portugal 4-0 and Nigeria dumped Denmark 2-0.

For Nigeria, it was a sweet revenge after they lost to the Danes 6-2 in a friendly in June.

However, on Wednesday back in Sao Paulo they will be without midfielder Azubuike Okechukwu, who led them to win the U23 AFCON in December in Senegal after he picked up a needless second booking against Denmark.

Nigeria won this rematch comfortably as Denmark did not really push them and also goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel was at his best as he pulled off at least three top saves to keep a clean sheet in Salvador.

A bright start by Nigeria was finally crowned in the 16th minute by a rare goal by Chelsea star Mikel Obi, who slid home a super cutback by the lively Imoh Ezekiel.

Nigeria Olympic team coach Samson Siasia has said the focus is to beat Germany on Wednesday to qualify for the Gold medal match, while praising his defence for holding out against “a very, very good” Denmark.


Permutations have pitch Nigeria against hosts Brazil in the Gold medal match, but Siasia has insisted his team have to first eliminate Germany to reach the final.

“I don't want to worry about Brazil right now. I have the semi-final against Germany to think about and that is the only thing in my mind right now. After crossing the Germany hurdle, we will think of our opponents for the gold medal match,” Siasia said.

"We saw what the Brazilians did to the Danish team (4-0); they are a very good side. They didn't start well but the most important thing is how well you end. It's not easy scoring four goals against this Danish team.

“We have gone through a lot on this journey and we cannot get to the gold medal match and then freeze.”

The coach singled out his defence for keep a clean sheet after fears they may buckle against a rampant Denmark attack.

“We were actually worried about our defence, but they came out and played very, very well against a good Danish team,” he commended.

“I think these guys have to be applauded coming out like that, and getting those two goals. It wasn't an easy game but I am happy we are in the semi-finals."

Nigeria is a perfect match for the Germans.

Looking closely at the statistics, we seem the first real hurdles for the Germans. They conceded 5 goals before getting here. If Fiji were a formidable foe, they would have scored against the German.

Etebo will be fit for the game. We pray Mikel prove his mettle once against in Midfield. Imoh and Sadiq should take half chances that come their way. Our defense must concentrate because any mistake they make, we will pay dearly for it.

We have to control the Midfield to snatch a win against the Germans. The game may go into extra time and penalties.

It is going to be a tight game but as a Nigerian, I am optimistic we will win this.
