Johannes Löhr (5 July 1942 – 29 February 2016) was a German international football player[2] and manager.

The striker scored 166 top division goals for 1. FC Köln,[3] more than any other Köln player.[1] He made his debut for the team in August, 1964. His 27 goals in the 1967–68 season led the league, making him the first Köln player to do so.

Löhr won 20 caps for West Germany, scoring five goals. He appeared in all six matches of the DFB team at the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico, playing as a left side attacker.[4] It was his header back across the goal in extra-time against England, from a Jürgen Grabowski cross, that enabled Gerd Muller's winner in the 3–2 quarter-final win.

After his career as player, he managed 1. FC Köln between 1983 and 1986. In 1986, he began working for the DFB and was coach of the West German team that won Bronze at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul.

He died on 29 February 2016.[5]
