Germany: The 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Helmut Schön (1915-1996)

Today, I would like to show you a nice maximum card I got. The Card commemorates Helmut Schön. He was a German football player and manager. He is best remembered for his exceptional career as manager of West Germany. Under Schön's leadership, the German team were Football World Cup runners-up in 1966, third in the World Cup of 1970, European champions in 1972, World Cup winners in 1974 and European Championship runners-up in 1976. He holds World Cup records for both coaching the most matches (25) and the most wins (16), and was the first coach to win both a World Cup and a European Championship. On 15th September 2015 he would have become 100 years.
