Albert "Ali" Beier (born September 28, 1900 in Lokstedt , today in Hamburg , † September 21, 1972 in Hamburg) was a German football player . He played in the position of right- back . His way of playing was considered very physical and robust.


Beier began his football career at Eintracht Lokstedt. After four years at FC Union 03 Altona , he finally moved to Hamburger SV in 1921 . He achieved his first success with the Hanseatic League in 1922 when he won the North German championship and reached the final of the German championship . After two draws against 1. FC Nürnberg , this was rated on the green table in favor of HSV, but the latter waived the title.

In October 1922 Beier made his debut in the North German national team in the national cup . At the end of the season there was again the North German championship title and the first official championship title after a 3-0 win over Union Oberschöneweide . In the 1923/1924 season he was with the HSV for the third time in a row North German champions. In the German championship he reached the final with HSV for the third time in a row, this time they lost against 1. FCN with 0-2. With the north German selection, he also reached the final in the national cup, where they lost 2: 4 to the south German selection.

The Victoria - challenge cup for the German soccer champions from 1903 to 1944 - won the Hamburger SV for the first time in 1923 and again in 1928.

For the international match on December 14, 1924 against Switzerland (1: 1), he was appointed to the German national football team for the first time . In the following years, however, he was unable to establish himself in the national team, mainly because Germany also remained without a win in its next three appearances.

In 1925 he was with the HSV for the fourth time in a row North German champions, in the final round of the German championship, however, the HSV failed in the first round; Beier was absent due to an injury.

In 1927 and 1928 he was again in the final of the Federal Cup, both games were lost. In 1928 he was with HSV also for the 5th time north German champion and after 1923 again German champion after all opponents could be outclassed (5: 2 in the final against Hertha BSC ).

In 1928 Beier returned to the national team and was used in both games of the Germans at the Olympic football tournament in Amsterdam (including the 1: 4 against Uruguay).

In 1929 he had his last international match for the time being in the 2-1 victory over Italy , as he was ousted from his position by Franz Schütz . He had his eleventh and last appearance in the national team in 1931, in the 6-0 debacle in Berlin against Austria .

At the club level and in the North German selection, however, things went better for Beier. In 1930 he won the national cup for the second time (2-0 against Brandenburg), with HSV he was again three times in a row north German champion between 1931 and 1933, at the German championship finals he failed all three times prematurely with HSV. With the restructuring of the league system by the National Socialists, the successful phase of the HSV also ended. Beier ended his career in 1933 when HSV announced in a letter that he would no longer be considered in the league team for reasons of age. Beier played a total of 27 games in the German championship finals and 28 games for the selection of Northern Germany, 19 of them in the national cup.
