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.

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 New York City, Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia are filled with historical documents.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.
