German artillery destroyed the Belgian frontier forts in 1914 and the country was eliminated, but French artillery helped win the Battle of the Marne, saving Paris.



(Belgium was also eliminated in the 2014 World Cup Quarterfinals by Argentina.)

To read more about German and French artillery in the First World War:

To see more German football: Watch the 2014 World Cup Final in Estádio Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro on 13 July

To see more French football: Wait until 2018. France won in 1918. Can they win in 2018 versus Germany?

The German attack was overwhelming.

Yea, Germany has won more football games than wars in the 20th Century. ;)
