Article states "from 1972–88, Germany competed in the European Championship final tournament as West Germany". I do not agree, since the nation was and still is called "Bundesrepublik Deutchland", B.R.D.. And the team represents the nation in all cases outside the U.K. (And atleast England, Scotland and Northern Ireland have league system of their own, so that's fine). During the period between 1948 and 1990 there were "two Germanys". The already mentioned and "Deuchche Demokratiche Republik", D.D.R. or in English G.D.R.. In october 1990 the former G.D.R. became a part of B.R.D. And hence I think that all results of the B.R.D. must be aggregated and D.D.R. results be separated as an no longer existing nation. It's possible that B.R.D. can win the World Cup this summer. And if that happens I would say that "B.R.D. won their fourth title". Even if the nation previosly has been known as "Western Germany". The German reunion was infact B.R.D. that got more territory and inhabitants. Boeing720 (talk) 05:17, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
