Hah, that is...interesting. My fault for never trying out Int. management until now with Yugoslavia, just makes sense that that "issue" gets carried over to the W. German team. At least the other Germany have no such concerns Great work on the database, and late congrats on release btw. Having a lot of fun with the good old bad old Int. competitions design.
Not sure why, but the West German senior international team seems to only use no-name generated players, the kind that shows up when there's a lack of eligble players for a match. They still got to the world cup final, so it doesn't seem to really impact their performance. But it is odd, since I'd expect to see Neuer and the like given that my database settings include Int. Players in Europe.
