This cartoon was printed in The Green’Un, a Saturday sports paper published in Sheffield on August 15, 1914. It depicts an image how the cartoonist thought German football to be before 1914. We can see a pretty rough scene in an imaginary game between Belgium and Germany. The image accompanied an editorial on the role of football during the war and criticism of German football in the pre-war period.
