2014 FIFA World Cup™

96 days to go

FIFA World Cup™ winner Berti Vogts made 96 appearances for West Germany, making him one of the most capped players in his country’s history.

Known as *Der Terrier *for his dogged determination and tenacity, Vogts was at his best when up against one of the game’s most skilful players, Johan Cruyff, in the 1974  Final.

For all Cruyff's ability - ability which earned the Dutch an early penalty - it was Vogts who ultimately came out on top in the duel as West Germany lifted the trophy on home soil.
