Back then, a half-a-century ago, the situation was totally different. Economically, we were practically on our knees, and politically, we were still excluded from the community of nations. Today, in this respect, we have a totally different and much more stable basis.
At the World Cup and even now at the Confederations Cup, our security provisions will ensure the greatest level of protection possible for all those participating - both inside and outside the stadiums.
At least six Bayern players, who have won almost everything, are in the national squad.
At any rate, I can only see such a success having positive effects for everyone, particularly as our anticipation of the World cup would only increase further.
