Weber, a central defender with 1. FC Köln in 356 Bundesliga matches, poked the ball home with almost the last kick of the game at Wembley in 1966 to make the score 2–2. Opponents England went on to win 4–2 in extra time.
Weber played for Köln between 1963 and 1978 and won 53 caps for his country, scoring just one other goal. He also represented West Germany at the 1968 European Championships and the 1970 World Cup. His last appearance for his country was in 1974.
From summer 1978 until his dismissal in January 1980 he coached the Bundesliga side Werder Bremen but was sacked in the relegation struggle of the North German side in his second season. His successor Fritz Langner, who acted in cooperation with Rudi Assauer, couldn't avoid the drop to the 2. Bundesliga in the later stages of Bremen's 1979-80 campaign.
In retirement, Weber has been involved with the German branch of the Special Olympics.
