Germany have always had a knack for producing incredible footballers, and while that doesn’t always immediately translate into national team success, it most definitely has for them.

Die Mannschaft are one of the most successful teams to compete within international competition, winning four World Cups, three European Championships, a Confederations Cup and nose-bleed high finishes on the Olympic stage.

Even when they aren’t sweeping up silverware, their incredible players are putting on high-octane performances. Here’s a look at the all-time top goalscorers for the German national team.
