Jürgen Sparwasser Turns 70 (* June 4, 1948)

The player who scores the most legendary goal in the history of German-German football is none other than Jürgen Sparwasser. In what would be the first and last 1974 world cup game between the two German national teams he shoots the decisive 1:0 for the East German team, a definite underdog. Against the backdrop of the Cold War the game had been talked up as a brotherly battle from the very beginning. East Germany hails the “Sparwasser goal” a triumph over the class enemy. Later on in the world cup the victory turns out to be rather disadvantageous. As the top team of its group the GDR has to play other top teams--strong opponents such as Brazil, Netherlands and Argentina. Eventually the GDR gets eliminated from the world cup. The FRG on the other hand has it comparatively easy and proceeds to win the world cup.  

The politicized goal makes Sparwasser famous but lets his athletic achievements fade into the background. Only a few weeks prior to the world cup his football team, the 1st FC Magdeburg shot itself into the victorious European cup final against the renowned A.C. Milan. The multiple top scorer and his club win the East German championship three times and grab four national cup titles. The striker also has a hand, or rather foot, in the East German bronze medal during the 1972 Olympic Games.

After ending his active career in 1979 due to injuries, the mechanical engineer goes back to school to become a “sports instructor with a special training in football” and eventually teaches at the teacher training college in Magdeburg. However, because he repeatedly rejects the offer of head coach at 1st FC Magdeburg, he is denied a doctorate. This leads to his decision to leave East Germany in 1988. Later on he works as a coach for a number of teams and promotes young players.
