German football icon Andreas Brehme has died at the age of 63.

Andreas Brehme, one of Germany's all-time football greats, has passed away at the age of 63.

Brehme's partner Susanne Schaefer has confirmed the death of the former German international to the DPA on behalf of his family.

By scoring the decisive penalty in the 1990 World Cup final against Argentina, Brehme secured his place in the history books of German football.

He played for Inter and was considered one of the best full-backs in the world at the time, having left Bayern Munich for the Italian side in 1988.

Brehme won two German league titles and one in Italy. He also won the UEFA Cup with Inter in 1991 and the DFB Cup with Kaiserslautern in 1996.

After his playing career, he coached Kaiserslautern from 2000 to 2002 and SpVgg Unterhaching in 2004-05. His last stint on the bench was as assistant to Giovanni Trapattoni at VfB Stuttgart in the 2005-06 season.

Brehme represented Germany a total of 86 times, scoring eight goals.
