When soccer pro Stefan Kuntz scored the equaliser in the 1-1 draw with England in the semi-finals, he paved the way for Germany’s national team to win the European Soccer Championship in 1996. After his biggest successes until then - winning the German Soccer Championship, winning the German Soccer Association’s DFB cup, being voted soccer player of the year as well as being awarded the title of top scorer twice – the Global Topspeaker had finally achieved the height of his career as a soccer player. At the age of 33, this amazing success was the just reward for his incredible determination, his assertiveness and his ambition. “I’ve always had to fight tooth and nail for what I wanted,“, says Stefan Kuntz today, „As my talent was only mediocre, I had to rely on my will of iron and the rest was a lot of hard work“.
