ABOUT

Andreas "Andy" Brehme (born 9 November 1960) is a German football coach and former football defender. He is best known for scoring the winning goal for Germany in the 1990 FIFA World Cup Final against Argentina on an 85th-minute penalty kick. He is considered to be one of the greatest free-kick takers and crossers of all time. Brehme's special skill was the fact that he was one of the few players in the world who could play with both feet equally well, making him very valuable as an outfield player. He was well known for taking penalties (although not exclusively) with his right foot and taking free kicks and corners with his left foot. It's believed that Brehme felt his right foot was more accurate than his left, but his left was harder. This was shown when, in the 1990 World Cup final, Brehme took the spot kick that won West Germany the trophy, with his right foot, but four years earlier in 1986 Brehme scored in the quarter final penalty shootout against Mexico, with a left foot piledriver. Though more often a defender, Brehme has shown an exceptional knack for finding the back of the net, scoring at every club he played for.
