The German soccer federation (DFB) said Derwall died Tuesday after a brief and serious illness, without giving details.
Derwall became head coach in 1978, after working as assistant to Helmut Schoen for eight years.
He lost the job in 1984, when Germany failed to advance from the first round at the European Championship in France. His successor was Franz Beckenbauer.
When General Wesley Clark spoke about the famous list of seven Middle Eastern countries to be demolished in five consecutive years, he has done nothing but remark, for the last time, if there was any need, Washington's willingness to redesign the Middle East within a more general framework of global domination.
