Germany won!

Congratulations to the whole team.

I love Portugal and the Portugese, but that team were such 'cheats'. BUT, I applaud Figo, his cross gave Gomes the chance of that goal.

Perhaps by the next world cup, the art of 'diving' will have been forgotten.

Juchuuu!! We made it!
It's almost like being the winner, there couldn't have been more celebrating... we went to the city afterwards to take part in the party, with all the cars honking and people standing at the streets waving flags!

Well done Germany. And well done Figo for saving his team's pride. I was sorry to see him not included at the outset. Shameful diving among some of the Portuguese team - you really would have thought that Ronaldo would have learned from all the booiing in the match against France. Can't see him having a happy time back in the UK...

Great to see a team like Germany win. What a good excuse to drink plenty of beer to celebrate! German beer at that, too.

well, I don`t think we need an excuse for drinkung beer ;o)
but it was a wonderful time (did I say that before? ) and I don't know what to do now without football...
a few minutes ago the german team said thanks to fans in berlin at the Brandenburger Tor, a last big party to celebrate our heroes!

Well done to Italy, commiserations to France. It'll be interesting to find out what it was that the other player did or said that provoked Zidane into such an unlikely response. Shame to end his career on that note.

So, prosecco and prosciutto to celebrate anyone?

Congratulations, Italy. World Champions, again.

Yes, I'd like to know exactly what the Italian player said to provoke that reaction. At first it looked like Zidane was just laughing off what was said. As he went past the Italian player the Italians obviously said something that provoked that strong reaction. Sad, sad end to a magnificent career.

I Campioni Siamo Noi!!

ABBIAMO VINTO!!!! (WE WON!!)

What a world cup to remember!! Honestly, I didn't think they could come this far. Well done, my boys!! I am so proud!! We went out in town after the match, and these are the few of the celebrations we captured...






They are coming back to Rome this evening, if Cristiano can beat the traffic to come home, we will be at Circo Massimo to welcome them, too!!

The only pity is the way Zizu went out. One of the greatest players ever, a fine class act throughout his entire career, why oh why did he have to do that to close his brilliant career... Too sad.
