Helmut Rahn was born in Essen-Katernberg on August 16, 1929. After finishing school he trained as an electrician. He played with Altenessen from 1938 until 1946 before he joined league club Oelde 1909. He moved to Rot-Weiss Essen from Sportfreunde Katernberg in 1951. It was then he was chosen for the national team by Herberger. The right winger earned a total of 40 caps and scored 21 international goals. In 1953 he won the DFB Cup, and then the 1955 national title with Essen. There was every reason to erect a memorial statue at the Rot-Weiss Essen stadium for such a player.

Rahn was an excellent technician, fantastic dribbler, right winger, joker, a cheerful soul. Rahn left RWE in 1959 and played with 1. FC Cologne for one season, then with the Dutch club SC Enschede for three years. At the start of the Bundesliga in 1963, he joined Meidericher SV (today MSV Duisburg) for two seasons. But the legendary figure which was Rahn began to crumble. He drank more and more pints, the slaps on the shoulder became less, his performance weakened, he scored less goals. Rahn retired in 1965, officially because of a knee injury. He withdrew from public life, very rarely gave interviews. The “Boss” died at his home in Essen at the age of 73 after a long illness on August 13, 2003. But he will always live through the radio commentary of the 3-2 triumph at Berne: “Rahn should shoot from the rear…“

He should have *Scoring, I've seen all of his World Cup goals ('54 and '58), and many were really interesting and precise shots with tricky trajectories. He was a great finisher.
