Germany is almost synonymous with sporting excellence.
As West Germany they won three World Cups, while Germany in its various guises stands second in the all-time Olympic medal table with 411 golds.
Yes, the country that gave us Michael Schumacher, Steffi Graf and Franz Beckenbauer is a true powerhouse.
Vanuatu? A tiny republic in the South Pacific with a population under 250,000 and no Olympic medals to its name.
When the two nations go head to head, it surely classifies as one of the greatest possible mismatches, doesn't it?
Not in Division 7 of the World Cricket League, in which the teams met on Saturday.
Vanuatu didn't just beat Germany - they wiped the floor with them.
Batting first at a neutral venue in Botswana, Vanuatu made 200 despite being bowled out with over 10 of their 50 overs remaining - Trevor Langa and Patrick Matautaava chipped in with half-centuries.
The German run chase was soon in trouble as they slumped to 27 for five.
Despite some resistance from Wasantha De Silva, who scored 31, the Germans were bowled out for 99, failing to get even halfway to their target.
Niko Unavalu was the pick of the bowlers, taking four wickets.
A delighted Vanuatu captain Andrew Mansale said: "I'm really pleased to win the way we did."
Germany captain Asif Khan remarked: "We're disappointed with the loss, as we thought we let them off the hook after having them at seven for 140. Credit to Vanuatu on its performance, though."
Vanuatu top the Division 7 table after the first round of matches - the competition continues until next weekend and Vanuatu will be hoping to pick up a few more scalps along the way.
