Berlin celebrates Germany's World Cup success

15/07/2014 from:SNTV


Berlin erupts with joy as Germany win the World Cup.


Thousands of Germany fans celebrated in Berlin on Sunday night after watching their country defeat Argentina 1-0 in extra time to win the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

On Berlin's Kurfuerstendamm boulevard, fans drove in a motorcade and were dancing on the street after Mario Goetze scored the goal that ended Germany's 24-year wait for another World Cup title.

Goetze's superbly taken goal not only awarded Germany the title of world champions, it also means they are the first European country to win a World Cup in the America's.

And it's safe to say, fans in Berlin were very happy with the result.

"It's sensational, a great game. The decisive man was Schweinsteiger. He really wanted it, they wanted to win. It's super."

SOUNDBITE: (German) Marc Boewein, German fan

"That's the best you can do, the best you can do. I've been waiting for this moment for 24 years. That's the best you can do. Thank you Germany."

It's Germany's first World Cup title as a unified nation, having won as West Germany in 1954, 1974 and 1990, and fireworks exploded in the Berlin sky to mark the achievement.
