ISTANBUL (CIHAN)- Germany’s World Cup victory was celebrated by German citizens in Istanbul on Monday. People, who filled the entertainment venues to watch the final match which was played between German and Argentina Teams, lived indescribable joy after the Germany’s 1-0 victory.

Germany became the World Cup winner after crushing Argentina in the extra times of the match. After the historical victory, German citizens in Istanbul celebrated their country’s victory with singing songs. Turkish people also attended the celebration to share the Germans happiness.

Germany have played a tournament-record eighth World Cup finale, having won four and lost as many. Argentina, who last reached this stage 24 years ago, had two wins and three losses.

German substitute forward Mario Goetze, 22, was the hero. In the 88th minute, Goetze replaced veteran striker Miroslav Klose as the crowd – both Argentina and Germany supporters – rose to give the all-time World Cup scoring leader of 16 goals a round of applause.
In the 113rd minute, Gotze did brilliantly to control another substitute forward Andre Schurrle’s cross with his chest and hit it one-time past German keeper Manuel Neuer. The ball found side netting at the far post. Gotze was elected the Man of the Match.
