UEFA Euro 2008: Germany- Squad Map.

Filed under: Germany,UEFA Euro 2008 — admin @ 5:30 pm

Though they were outshot by Poland 12-14, Germany won their first game last Sunday by a score of 2-0, with both goals scored by Polish-born Lukas Podolski  {click here, for a report from the UEFA site}.  Thursday, Germany plays Croatia.

There are three Polish-born players on the German team: Miroslav Klose, Lukas Podolski, and Piotr Trochowski.  Both Klose and Podolski were born in Silesia  {see this}, which was formerly part of Germany.  Most of Silesia is now in (south-west) Poland, with sections in the Czech Republic, and Germany.  {Click here, for background on Miroslav Klose’s family, and how they were able to get out of Communist-era Poland, with the help of German-ancestry laws.}

The map shows the 27 cities in Germany with a population over 250,000.  Here is a list of the largest cities in Germany  {mongabay site; click here}.   Below is a population density map of Germany (from Wikipedia).


Thanks to the UEFA site {click here}  for the German kits.
