Joachim Streich (born April 13, 1951 in Wismar) is a former East German footballer, who won the bronze medal with the DDR at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich.

He played as a striker for Aufbau Wismar (1957 - 1963), then TSG Wismar (1963 - 1967), Hansa Rostock (1967 - 1975) and 1. FC Magdeburg (1975 - 1985).

Between 1969 and 1984 he was capped 98 times for East Germany, scoring 53 goals. For a long time he was considered a member of the FIFA Century Club, but when FIFA changed regulations to no longer include games at the Olympic Games, four of his matches were stricken from his official FIFA record and he dropped out. The DFB still lists Streich with 102 caps on his website.[1]

Streich is regarded as one of the best DDR players and holds both the records for most appearances and goals scored in the national team.[2] Streich took part in the 1974 FIFA World Cup, scoring 2 goals in 4 matches.[3]

During his career he played 378 games in the DDR-Oberliga for FC Hansa Rostock and 1. FC Magdeburg, scoring a record 229 goals.[4] This tally earned him the top scorer award four times.[5] He also scored 17 goals in 42 European matches for Rostock (4/0) and Magdeburg (38/17). In 1979 and 1983 he won the East German Footballer of the Year award.

Following the end of his playing career he managed 1. FC Magdeburg, Eintracht Braunschweig and FSV Zwickau.
