Wolfgang Paul (born 25 January 1940 in Olsberg, Province of Westphalia) is a German former football player.[1]

Captaining Borussia Dortmund to the European Cup Winners Cup in 1966, Paul got included in Helmut Schön's West German squad for the 1966 FIFA World Cup.[2] Despite this, the defender never played a match for West Germany and had to retire early because of the effects an injury picked up in the late 1960s had to his game.
