Germany fans praise 'warrior' Schweinsteiger

15/07/2014 from:SNTV


Germany fans reflect on the Nationalmannschaft winning their fourth World Cup title as Lukas Podolski appears outside the team's Rio hotel wearing the colours of local side Flamengo with his name on the back.


SOUNDBITE: (English) Natalia and Mariana, Germany fans:

"Yeah [Bastian] Schweinsteiger was a warrior. [Jerome] Boateng as well. Mario Goetze who scored the goal as well of course. I don't really think they have a star. They are a team you know. It's not like Argentina who have [Lionel] Messi or Brazil who have Neymar, this is really important. You play football, you need to be a team, you don't have to have one player."

SOUNDBITE: (English) Fabiana Ban, Germany fan:

"I was very excited especially because we were so desperate after the second half-time because Argentina was as tough as Germany was. So I was like, 'Oh my God, are you going to win or are going to lose?'"
