Italy 1934 Qualification Round (Europe Group 8)
Taking part in the World Cup for the first time after choosing not to enter the inaugural competition in 1930 for economic reasons, Germany was placed in a three-team qualifying group alongside Luxembourg and France, with the top two teams qualifying for the finals. After the Luxemburgers had been beaten 9-1 by the Mannschaft and 6-1 by the French, the match between Germany and France became irrelevant and was cancelled with both teams having qualified.
