Interestingly, Germany did not beat a European team in the finals of either the World Cup or the European Championship between their victory over the Czech Republic in the Euro 96 final and their victory over Poland in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, a span of 10 years and 9 matches.
Germany beat both Mexico and the United States during this period, who were both ranked in the top ten of the FIFA World Rankings at the time, though neither Mexico or USA were considered "major football powers".
