As the East German national team won the inter-national qualification matches in 1963 against the West German amateur national team by a 3-0 win in Leipzig and a 2-1 loss in Hannover, the German Olympic team at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics was an East German one. The team won the bronze medal, beating Egypt, 3-1.
Forward Eberhard Vogel was the only member of the 1964 East German team who came back in 1972 at MÃ¼nchen, this time representing East Germany. The MÃ¼nchen team also claimed the bronze medal together with the Soviet Union after a 2-2 tie, after extra time. During the extra time the teams did not try to beat each other as both knew they would receive bronze medals.
Vogel domestically played with SC Motor and FC Karl-Marx-Stadt until 1970, later with FC Carl Zeiss Jena, in 440 Oberliga matches (188 goals), becoming the record holder for the most appearances in this league. He helped Karl-Marx-Stadt to win the East German national title in 1967, and Jena to win the East German Cup in 1972, 1974, and 1980.
From 1962-76 Vogel earned 74 international caps and scored 25 goals with the East German national team. He participated in the 1984 FIFA World Cup in West Germany, when East Germany won the historical match against West Germany, 1-0, at Hamburg in the first round, although he missed the match due to an injury. In 1969, Vogel was elected Footballer of the Year in East Germany.
After his retirement Vogel started a successful career as a coach and coached several West and East German teams, among others Borussia MÃ¶nchengladbach II, 1.FC KÃ¶ln II, Hannover 96, Carl Zeiss Jena, National Team of Togo, 1. FC Magdeburg, Dresdner SC. Beginning in 2010 Vogel worked as a scout with Carl Zeiss Jena.
