On Christmas Eve - the final day of the competition, we look back on the achievements of Hamburger SV hometown hero Uwe Seeler...

Seeler spent his entire career at HSV, finding the net 137 times in 237 Bundesliga appearances, as well as topping the scoring charts in the Bundesliga's maiden campaign in 1963/64. Along with Germany's Miroslav Klose and Brazil's Pele, he is one of only three players to have scored at four FIFA World Cups. He did not lift the trophy, however, reaching the final in 1966, finishing third in 1970 and fourth in 1958 and 1962. The 79-year-old is the grandfather of SV Werder Bremen midfielder Levin Öztunali.

  • Seeler was awarded the inaugural German Player of the Year prize in 1960.
  • He ended his career in Ireland at the age of 42, scoring twice for First Division side Cork City.
  • In 1963, the Hamburger native became the first player to score a hat-trick in a DFB Cup final (HSV beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0). It remains a record to this day, with Roland Wohlfarth (FC Bayern München) and Robert Lewandowski (Dortmund) equalling the feat in 1986 and 2012 respectively.
