The first time Germany played Argentina in the World Cup Final I was an exchange student in Rosenheim, West Germany (1986)

My family has turned into a big soccer family the last couple of years with my two older children playing competive soccer and my five year old on his, we have been watching as many World Cup games as possible.  With the final game set with Germany to face Argentina we see the continuation of a great World Cup rivarly.

When West Germany lost to Argentina in the 1986 World Cup I was an exchange student in Rosenheim, West Germany.  My host family bought me a Rudy Völler World Cup jersey and yesterday I dug it out of my soccer bag.  I have never worn the shirt and should probably have it framed....anyway, I thought I would share the photos of the shirt here as well as a link to the highlights of the 1986 final game from Azteca Stadium!
