This jersey from 1988 worn by the German team has attained iconic status over the years. The backdrop to its significance lies in the European Championship hosted by West Germany in that same year. The tournament commenced with a 1-1 draw against Italy in the opening match. Subsequently, the Mannschaft secured a 2-0 victory over Denmark in their second encounter, with Jürgen Klinsmann, a stalwart in the team since 1987, netting the first goal. Rudi Völler's two-goal performance in the following match against Spain ensured their qualification as group winners for the semi-finals, where they faced the Netherlands. Despite the Netherlands' recent World Cup qualifying setbacks in the 1970s, their performance in the European Championships was formidable. Despite Lothar Matthäus initiating the scoring, Ronald Koeman and Marco van Basten led the charge that eliminated the Germans from their own tournament. Matthäus participated in 25 matches across five World Cups: in 1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, and 1998. This established him as the record holder for the most matches played at a World Cup, until Lionel Messi's participation in the 2022 final surpassed him, marking his 26th match. For a considerable period, Matthäus was the sole field player to compete in action at five World Cups. However, this distinction has since been shared by Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Andrés Guardado, who have all achieved the same feat.
