German World Cup winners get hero's welcome at home

Published: Updated:

Germany’s World Cup-winning players were welcomed by thousands of fans on Tuesday as they returned home to celebrate the country’s fourth title.

Approximately 400,000 people gathered in the ‘fan mile’ in front of Berlin’s landmark Brandenburg Gate to celebrate the victory.

Fans began arriving overnight to secure good spots to welcome home coach Joachim Loew’s team and the trophy.

Germany’s fourth World Cup, the first since 1990, crowned years of work by Loew to modernize the team, and followed near misses at recent tournaments.
