Germany showed the world how strong their youth football team is when they won the FIFA Confederations Cup.

The current world champions are growing fast in terms of talent which continues to abound in the European country.

Basking in international glory, the German football federation said Tuesday that the number of players registered in the country has broken through the seven-million mark.

The federation said 7,043,964 men and women are registered members, an increase of 74,500 from the same time last year.

The growth, in a country of almost 83 million people, is largely attributed to the success of Germany's international teams.

The men's team are reigning World Cup champions and have just won the Confederations Cup in Russia, while the under-21 side were crowned European champions on Friday.

The German women's team are Olympic and European champions.

Did I hear you say ‘no wonder’?
