Germany will soon kick off their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign in Qatar as they look to lift the famous trophy once again later this year. However, the competition is expected to be fierce in this edition of the World Cup as 31 other top nations will challenge the Germans for a shot of becoming the next world champions in a few weeks’ time.

With Germany fans all over the world optimistic about their team’s chances of doing well in this tournament, let’s take a look at how many times the European giants have lifted the World Cup.

When Did The German National Team First Win The World Cup?

The Germans won their first World Cup way back in 1954 when West Germany came from behind to beat Hungary by a 3-2 scoreline in the final at the Wankdorf Stadium in Switzerland.

Helmut Rahm ended up scoring the winning goal for West Germany which ensured their first-ever triumph in the prestigious competition.

Germany’s current manager, Hansi Flick will now look to use their first World Cup win as inspiration to lead his men to the final of the 2022 World Cup which will take place at the Lusail Stadium later this year.

How Many Times Has Germany Won The World Cup?

Germany has won the World Cup four times in 1954, 1974, 1990 and 2014 respectively. Only Brazil has got more World Cup trophies than the Germans in the entire history of the competition.

Their latest win came in the 2014 FIFA World Cup which was held in Brazil. Joachim Lowe managed to lead them to the final where they beat Argentina 1-0 after extra time with Mario Gotze scoring the only goal of that game.

However, it has been eight years since their last win, so Hansi Flick will be eager to bring the World Cup back to Germany come December.
