Happy Birthday 65th "Der Kaiser"

Franz Beckenbauer, one of the all-time great soccer players, who virtually invented the position of sweeper. On the pitch, he combined grace with great intelligence and vision. Beckenbauer remains the only person to lead his country to the World Cup as a captain (of the 1974 German team) and manage (of the 1990 team). He remains a major presence in German and international football today.
