Wales 1-0 Germany
European Championship qualifier 1992
Date: 5 June, 1991

Wales beat the reigning world champions in a historic evening at the Cardiff Arms Park.

The mighty Germans had a year earlier won their third World Cup crown but Wales caused an international upset to beat the now unified Germany in 1991.

Legendary striker Ian Rush's memorable second-half winner proved the difference but goalkeeper Neville Southall's heroics in the Wales goal earned the Welsh their first win over the Germans.
