  • The Germany–Italy football rivalry between the national football teams of Germany and Italy, the two most successful football nations in Europe and only behind Brazil internationally, is a long-running one. Overall, the two teams have won eight FIFA World Cup championships and made a total of fourteen appearances in the final of the tournament – more than all the other European nations combined. They have played against each other five times in the World Cup, and many of these matches have been notable in the history of the tournament. The "Game of the Century", a 1970 semifinal between the two countries that Italy won 4–3 in extra time, was so dramatic that it is commemorated by a plaque at the entrance of the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.Germany has also won three European Championships while Italy has won it once. The two countries have faced each other four times in the European championship, with three draws (one German penalty shoot-out victory) and one Italian victory.While Germany has won more international championships, Italy is largely dominant in the head-to-head international match-up, having beaten Germany 15 times in 34 games, with 11 draws and 8 defeats. Moreover, Germany had never defeated Italy in a major tournament match until the Euro 2016 quarter finals, with all Germany's other wins over Italy being in friendly competitions. However, the draw between the two teams in the group stage of Euro 1996 eliminated Italy from the tournament, while Germany had already qualified for the knockout stage.There were also four matches played between Italy and East Germany which resulted 1 win for each country and 2 draws.The two countries played against each other once in the Summer Olympics. In the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, West Germany defeated Italy 3–0 in the bronze medal match.Also unique in world football rivalries, each national team has won a World Cup while hosting it, as well as when the other country has hosted the tournament.Germany scored their first victory over Italy in 21 years at the Allianz Arena in Munich on 29 March 2016, winning 4–1, the previous victory being on 21 June 1995, where Germany won 2–0.On 2 July 2016, Germany won their first competitive match in a major tournament against Italy at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux in Bordeaux during the quarter finals of Euro 2016, winning 6–5 in a penalty shoot-out after it ended 1–1 in extra time.
