Lothar Herbert Matthäus is a German great footballer of the 20th century. After captaining West Germany to victory in the 1990 FIFA World Cup where he lifted the World Cup trophy, he was named European Footballer of the Year (Ballon d'Or). Matthäus held the record of having played in five FIFA World Cups (1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998), more than any other outfield player in men's football, until the 2018 World Cup, in which Mexico's Rafael Márquez equalled his record and holds the record for the most World Cup matches played by a single player (25 games). Matthäus is the most capped German player of all time, retiring with a total of 150 appearances (83 for West Germany) in 20 years which was a World record at that time (2000).
During his career, he usually played as a box-to-box midfielder, although late in his career he played as a sweeper.
