The Day When Germany Won The World Cup

Toronto football fans went bonkers on the day when Germany won the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. They cheered loudly and spilled out onto the streets to celebrate victory for Germany’s football team. Argentina fans wept but not beyond inconsolable. It was a good game. Messi’s team didn’t lose without giving Muller’s team the best defense they could.

Meanwhile, in John and Front Streets in Toronto today, hundreds of fans from two opposing countries came to watch the game in searing summer heat. Win or lose, they all moved on after the game—and will wait for another 4 years again.

Before the game started, the Brazilian samba dancers entertained the fans with their booty-shaking moves.
