Both have won the WC 4 times…
The Germans have won the Euro Cup more times!
Italian teams have won the UCL more times…

but the Germans have won in the Americas, so that makes them better IDHO!

What say you?

since when UCL discussion is involved when comparing nations?
Its club football..

I say , even before today germany was ahead of italy.. better overall results...

however who is the best ever all time in world cup rankings? brazil has one more world cup then germany... but overall results germany just matches them..and even made one more final..
thats better discussion..

Germany has been remarkably consistent for decades. Making semis, finals, and champions so many times in Euro and WC.

Italy won two WCs back in the 30s. Germany's body of work in modern era is astounding and so they are #1 from Europe for sure.

Arguably they are the best ever in the world ahead of Brazil internationally. Brazil are far behind Uruguay and Argentina in number of Copa titles.

Euro has far more teams competing and so it's harder for any country to win but Germany still have the most Euro titles.

All that matter is titles. On the wc scale Italy has never lost to Germany, both now have 4 stars. In Europe Germany has more cups, not sure how they've done against Italy but last time they met Italy won. Head to head who is better? How else do you compare?

You`re kidding yourself on here, Germany are more successful national team wise, more finals, more semi finals, equal number of world cups and 3 Euro titles to Italy`s 1 Euro title... the head to heads don't mean shit as they could be all about timing... you really think West Germany of 72 or 74 for example would have lost to Italy just because its Italy ?... no, the Germans were better at that time and would have won. Its just the luck of the draw that Italy had the better team most times they played each other. You think Italy would have beat Germany now ?... possibly but not likely.

Germany and Brazil are the most successful national teams, its not even an argument to be honest.
