Germany is a three-time champion with top-quality players in every position while Algeria has advanced past the opening round for the first time.Algeria is one of only three countries with a 100 percent win record against Germany.Algeria beat Germany 2-0 at home in a friendly in 1964 and won 2-1 in the opener for both teams at the 1982 World Cup in Spain.However, in their third group game in '82 in Gijon, Germany scored in the 10th minute and for the next 80 minutes the Germans and the Austrians pushed the ball around without any real effort to score since that result allowed both to advance at the expense of Algeria.
