INFORMATION & ADDITIONAL LINKS:

The German National team from 1937 was one of the strongest teams that ever represented Germany. The team won ten of his eleven games in 1937 (only a 2-2 against the Netherlands in the first match in 1937) but the main reason for the enduring fame of this team was the match against Denmark on the 16th of May 1937.

Ernst Lehner scored the 1-0 in the 6th minute and after that Otto Siffling scored 5 goals in only 32 minutes (33rd, 40th, 44th, 48th, 65th minute, he received the nickname "Der Kanonier von Breslau/The gunner of Breslau" for it). In the second half Adolf Urban (70th minute) and Fritz Szepan (78th minute) made it 8:0 for Germany. This result is still the highest loss of Denmark’s football national team and is regarded as one of the greatest German football performances ever.

After this stunning win the team received its famous name "Breslau-Elf" (Breslau Eleven). The following matches were won too so that Germany was seen as a favorite for the World Cup 1938 in France. But then politics destroyed this magical team. After the German annexion of Austria ("Anschluss") the political leaders of Germany forced Herberger to create a national team with players from both countries. This decision ended the success of the "Breslau-Elf" and resulted in the first stage exit of the team at the World Cup 1938. Never again a German national team reached such a winning quote in a year but today more and more people forget about this team although it was the strongest German team that never won a trophy.

Nur Hitler konnte sie stoppen
