Winning the World Cup

Winning the world cup

I took this picture shortly after the final whistle of this year’s World Cup final, which Germany won with a late goal against Argentina. It had been a nerve-wrecking game, and afterwards we ran out onto the streets to see people celebrate. I had watched countless World Cups before, Germany had always been knocked out in a decisive game and here we were, suddenly the winners of the tournament. “So that is how that feels”, I said to Michi as firecrackers exploded around us and honking cars sped by.
