Team USA vs. Germany: Comparing Countries by Soccer History, Celebrities, Culture, More
There's no denying that the United States and Germany have not always had the best relationship off the soccer field, especially during the 20th century.
These two teams will meet in a Group G game that will decide who wins the group on Thursday. In the meantime, Latin Post.com compare the two countries on and off the field, head to head.
Soccer has never really been America's game. Germany has the far better portfolio when it comes to soccer accomplishments. Germany has won three World Cups and has appeared in seven finals making them one of the most successful teams in the world. America has never made it to the World Cup Finals, but they have faced Germany twice in the World Cup.
In 1998, Germany defeated the U.S. 2-0 and in 2002 Germany was again victorious this time 1-0. Germany would advance to the Finals in 2002, but would lose to Brazil.
The U.S. is full of hotspots for historical landmarks and attractions across the country. New York City, Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia are filled with historical documents. If viewers want more nature they can visit the Southwest region of the country. One of the most famous sculptures in the United States is Mount Rushmore, which is located in South Dakota.
Germany is located in Western Europe and is home to many famous cathedrals and other monuments. Some of the most famous sights is the Neuschwanstein Castle and the Holstentor. The Brandenburg Gate is a must see arch located in Berlin. Outside of castles and cathedrals, Germany is a fun nightlife country as well.
Both America and Germany have many celebrities on the big screen. Some of the most famous American celebrities include Oprah Winfrey, Adam Sandler, and Ben Stiller. Mario Lopez is a very distinguished actor who has appeared in multiple movies and TV shows. Sibel Kekille is a very popular actress in Germany and perhaps the most well-known German-born actor is Bruce Willis. Willis has made many great movies such as Die Hard, Pulp Fiction, and Unbreakable. Also, there are other major celebrities with German roots such as "X-Men:Days of Future Past" actor Michael Fassbender, supermodels Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer, tennis star Boris Becker, actress Diane Kruger and race car driver Michael Schumacher.
Germany and America share many similarities when it comes to food. This comes as no surprise because many of America's dishes come from Western Europe. Some of the most popular American foods include pizza, pasta, bread, hamburgers, and other various meats. Germany is also well-known for their meats, and have been long known for their world famous bratwurst. Both Germany and America excel with fried foods and fish. Germany is one of the most well-known nations in the world when it comes to beer.
Despite many past political differences, mostly in the '40s, Germany and the U.S. have done very good business in recent decades. The United States' biggest exported goods include food, capital goods, and beverages. America's biggest export partners are China, Canada, Mexico, China, and Japan.
Germany's biggest export partners include France, England, the Netherlands, and the U.S. Germany is well known for their engineering. The main exported goods are cars, chemicals, and computer products.
