No one celebrated Germany's 1-0 extra-time win over Argentina in the World Cup final better than striker Lukas Podolski. Though he didn't play in the match and only made two appearances during the tournament, he did all he could to savor the scene at the Maracana Stadium. After the final whistle, he wasted no time in posting a selfie with Bastian Schweinsteiger on the pitch to Twitter.
And then he one-upped himself by posting one with German chancellor Angela Merkel.
But he didn't just spend the whole night taking pictures of himself with increasingly important people. Once the majority of fans had left and the clean-up had begun, Podolski took his son Louis on the pitch and they took turns firing penalty kicks at each other. At one of the most famous stadiums in the world. After winning the World Cup final.
To keep the boy from being too spoiled though, Lukas did make the save.
And that is how you celebrate winning the World Cup.
