Notably last season, the German club won the champions league and was in pole position to have one of their players nominated as the Balon D’or recipient but the organizers of the cancelled the event.
Ever since the Balon D or was institutionalized only in 1956 only 4 Germans have won the coveted trophy. According to Thomas Muller this is because of what they are taught during their childhood days while playing for their football. He said In Germany, we don't believe in superstars. We are taught from an early age to play as a team, not to shine alone. That's why you won't see many German players winning a Balon d'Or, but that's also why you can see 4 stars on our jersey.
Germany are on course to reverse their shocking world cup exit in 2018 by making a claim for the European championships.
Do you think Germany will win the Euros?
