Bremer of one. Indeed, his presence in the troika is also the lowest, and has always been a foil for the other two big names. But in fact, his contribution to German football is no less than that of the other two. In the 1990 World Cup final, it was the German heavy artillery Bremer who killed Argentina with a penalty kick.
Today we will review the career of the legendary German left-back Bremer. Bremer was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1960. His father told him that Hamburg is a great city. In addition to politics, Hamburg also has football. Bremer is not a very talented football player, and he hasn't even touched football before the age of 7. He started playing football at the age of 8 and was still an unknown football kid at the age of 11. But his father told him that football is not a game, but treat him as a war. Since then, Bremer has been practicing hard every day. He joined the low-level Ullenhorst club in his hometown at the age of 15, and he has grown up there. The most amazing thing is that he has trained super long-range shooting ability, and still The kind of bow left and right. In 1980, he finally took the first step of his career. The Saarbrücken club of Bundesliga gave an invitation. Although the club is not strong, Bremer showed super strength. He was the team for the season. He played 36 times and scored 3 goals.
His outstanding performance attracted the attention of the nearby Bundesliga club Kaiserslautern. In 1981, Bremer moved to Kaiserslautern and immediately became the team's main force. He was defensive in place, speed was not slow, and his assist ability was strong. He has a good left and right long shot and is a versatile player on the field, often helping the team score goals. In the first season, he scored 4 goals and Kaiserslautern won the fourth place in the Bundesliga.
In Kaiserslautern, he is the core of the team, and he can even occasionally play a free agent position. In the 1983-84 season, Bremer grew up in the Bundesliga into an excellent player who can play against Matthaus. He scored 8 goals in the league that season and was selected for the West German team in the 1984 European Championship. In that European Championship, although West Germany was defeated by Spain and missed the qualifying group, Bremer performed well and was selected as the best team.
Since then, he has become the best full-back in West Germany, but Kaiserslautern has been at a low point at this time, ranking in the middle and lower reaches of the league, and has not won any trophies, but Bremer’s team Kaiserslautern has a deep love.

In fact, the most memorable thing in that game was Bremer's excellent psychological quality.
He was replaced at the end of the first half in the first group game against Uruguay, and in the second game he became a drinking fountain manager. In the third game of the group stage, the Danish team finished 2-0.

Bremer played 120 minutes in the game and made a steady penalty in the final penalty shootout, establishing his position in Beckenbauer's heart.
In the subsequent match with France, in the semi-finals, Bremer became more and more courageous, facing the strongest right-back of France, Amoros. He did not lose the wind, and shot a free kick with a left foot to start the West German team. Records, in the end West Germany won the French 2-0 to advance to the final. In the final final, in order to freeze Maradona, Beckenbauer also transferred Bremer to the middle to help Matthaeus mark Maradona, but it still did not help. The West German team lost 2 to 3 and missed the game. The God Cup, however, the two goals of West Germany in that game were scored by Bremer’s corner kick. After the 1986 World Cup, Bremer became West Germany’s number one penalty shooter and number one. Corner kicker, it is incredible that he usually uses his left foot for corner kicks and his right foot for penalty kicks. Such a bipedal monster is really rare in football.

In the first season, he helped Bayern win the Bundesliga championship, which was also Bremer's first career trophy. That season, Bayern also reached the Champions League final, but unfortunately they lost to Porto in the final, losing 2-1. At this time, whether in the national team or in the club, Bremer is the most important right-hand man of Mateus. On the court, he plays the left side and escorts Mateus.
