There's a distinct lack of German icons compared to the other major footballing nations.
Why is this ?

    Agreed.

    There are certainly enough to warrant more than they currently have.

    How many at present?

    Lehmann?

    Klose?

    4, Matthaus and ballack. The only useable one is matthaus.

    I think there's 4 atm. Lothar, Lehmann, Ballack and Klose. That's around half the number of English, Dutch, Brazilian, Italian icons.

    Just seems a bit strange.

    Biggest omissions for me are Beckenbauer, Kahn, Gerd Muller and Klinsmann.
    A case could be man for the likes of Andreas Brehme, Andreas Moller, Paul Brietner, Karl Rumminegge, Uwe Seeler and Fritz Walter.

    Backbencher and Muller no doubt are worthy of icon status.

    Germany were always a great team, not necessarily having one or two star players stand out.

    You'll never see Oliver Khan in an EA game as he entered some legal battle with them over them using his image etc without his permission in the early 00s

    Most of those guys have been in PES the last couple of years. I wonder if they have an exclusive on them.

    yes mark shwartzer, craig johnstone, harry kewell, mark bosnich, tim cahill, matthew ryan but none of them really up to icon status. besides, australian market not big enough for ea to give us one.

    He's in PES, as i have him in MyClub.

    The others, especially Beckenbauer, must be down to licensing.
