well, it's the history between the both nations. unfortunately austria couldn't keep up with the glory of the past for one reason or another and the germans have nothing bout mockery for that. although we helped them in the WC 1982 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Germany_1%E2%80%930_Austria_%281982_FIFA_World_Cup%29
can you name one player who stands out from their side?
Low, the coach
Muller, I though he was the best player at the WC
