2014 Fifa World Cup

Congratulations to Germany for winning the 2014 Fifa World Cup! I think I heard them celebrating all the way from Austria… After some amazing and surprising matches, lots of laughter and tears, the champions were crowned and the Fifa World Cup ended. This World Cup was one with much excitement and Im already looking forward to the next one in 4 years.
