Joy

 

Germany erupted in ecstasy Sunday, with fans dancing the night away, the World Cup final win against Argentina that handed the country its historic fourth title.

Fireworks exploded across Berlin as supporters cheering the 1-0 victory thronged the streets and honking cars snaked their way through crowds, with black, red and gold German flags flapping in the wind.

More than 200,000 fans jumped for joy in the heart of the capital, singing "Oh, it's beautiful!" and chanting "Super Deutschland."

"This victory is hugely important -- it's my first!" said Carsten Glaser, 20.

He said that while the Germans were a "team," "Argentina only had (Lionel) Messi."
