Before Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane there were the likes of Michael Tarnat, Eike Immel and of course, Uwe Rosler, all of whom have comprised City's German contingent at one time or another.
With England's John Stones and Kyle Walker set to face Die Mannschaft at Wembley, we recall some of the best moments from some of the Blues who have hailed from Germany.
Who can forget Rosler coaxing the ball over Peter Schmeichel's outstretched arms, or Tarnat rifling in a thunderbolt against Blackburn Rovers?
More recently, it's Gundogan and Sane who've hit the headlines, with the former impressing with his probing passing in the middle of the park and Sane turning in several eye-catching and goal scoring performances from the flanks.
Watch the best of our Germans in the video above.
