Germany Jr. Youth (ドイツジュニア(Jr.)ユース, Duits Junior Youth), previously known as West Germany Jr. Youth (西ドイツジュニア(Jr.)ユース, Nishi Duits Junior Youth), is the final and strongest opponent of the International Jr. Youth Championship.
In the U-16 tournament in Europe, Germany was the opponent of All Japan Jr. in such contest. In the anime, the team was shown both in the Shin Captain Tsubasa OVA and Road to 2002 anime. The anime version also appear in cinematics in the Captain Tsubasa J: Get in the Tomorrow game.
- Home: White with black collar, the national Germany insignia and black shoulder stripes (three in the manga, two in Dream Team game), with black shorts and side thin white stripes and white socks. This color pattern resembles Germany's colors since the 1980s., most particularly, the uniform worn by Germany in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.
- Away: Leaf green jersey with white stripes (three in the manga and 1989 anime), on the neck with a white V-neck with a green stripe, the national Germany insignia and white stripes on the shoulders, white shorts and green socks. This color pattern was seen on the Tournament opening ceremony as well as for the finals against All Japan Jr. This uniform resembles the away kit worn by Germany in the 1986 World Cup.
- Keeper: Crimson jersey with thin black horizontal chest stripes, three white shoulder stripes, the national Germany insignia cobalt blue sleeves and collar, with cobalt blue pants and white socks. This color pattern resembles the keeper kit worn by Harald Schumacher in the 1982 World Cup.
- Shin Captain Tsubasa: the home uniform is similar to the Manga away colors. The away uniform is rose red jersey with white stripes on the neck with white v-neck collar with a rose red stripe, the Germany national insignia and white stripes on the shoulders, white shorts and rose red socks. This pattern color was mostly seen on the Shin Captain Tsubasa (1989 OVA), during the previous matches before the finals.
- 2001 anime, the uniform is similar to the green Manga home colors, but with a dark bottle green shirt and black shorts (rather than a leaf green shirt with white shorts), and the keeper uniform has other colors, orange jersey with thin horizontal chest stripes, three white shoulder stripes, jet black sleeves and collar, with jet black pants and white socks.
In the defense, the mysterious keeper Müller can stop any long, mid-length, no-trap or combined shoots, as an "unbeatable wall" due to his hard training with coach Guild. He was even able to stop the Hayabusa Shot, the Eagle shot, the Drive Shot, or the powerfuls Neo Tiger Shot and the Drive Tiger Twin Shot.
The position used for the players is 4-4-2, with great defenders. On the midfield, Schester works as the "computer tactician" and center field pivot with the help of the second gamemaker Kaltz. In the offensive all the shoots are done by the "young emperor" Karl Heinz Schneider and some assists with midfielders or the other offensive top Margus.
