German fans celebrate World Cup win in Toronto

Posted by Derek Flack / July 14, 2014

World Cup Toronto GermanyGerman fans in Toronto erupted in celebration as their team pulled out last minute heroics at the 2014 World Cup. Crowds at the Musket restaurant in Etobicoke and outside the CBC Building on Front St. waved flags, sounded their horns, and showed off their lederhosen in the wake of Mario Goetze's clutch goal. The picture was very different at the Sky Ranch Restaurant on Dufferin St. where Argentinian fans assembled with so much hope at the outset of the day.

Check out how Toronto handled all the World Cup Final drama in this photo gallery.

it was a good game and the only way it would have been better is if maybe my team (NED) had made it through.

Everyone has their team, when your team is eliminated do you stop watching? Uh, no, you pick a team to root for and get swept up in the fun. Nothing wrong with that and nothing to complain about.. except oh right, "Toronto factor".

Exactly. From the start I was for Italy (even though I'm far from Italian)... and then for Argentina for the Final game. Sure they lost.. but hey.. Germany made one sweet a$$ goal. Kudos to them. :D

Thank Satan World Cup is over!
What a boring, crappy snoozefest!

No more horn blowing!
No more racist, insensitive quotes by idiotic fans!
No more band wagon fans!
No more people faking/want to be Brazilian!

It's not a beautiful game.
It is a corrupt game.
It's just a bunch of wimpy athletes (actors) auditioning for Transformers 4!

It's over, finally!

What a dismal species...actually having to derive personal validation by arbitrarily claiming association to a group of complete strangers who have deposited a ball in a net more frequently than another group of complete strangers.
Why aliens having invaded and processed us all into fertilizer for our utter incapacity to evolve after thousands and thousands of years, is inscrutable...

Enjoy reading your dictionary alone Darwin. Bitter uncoordinated hipster. The rest of us will take pleasure in activities together.
