GERMANY, HAMBURG: THE AOL ARENA

In 1974 West and East Germany butted heads at the AOL Arena, in what was said to be the most physically imposed matches of that time. With tremendous endurance, triumph fell to the West by only one goal. One that day a possible 55,000 supporters were able to witness the epic battle of the titans.
