This was a great moment I must say 🙂
Linking up with a random set of germans currently in Paris, we decided to pick a table at the always friendly bistrot ‘Au Métro’ which is located in the 14th arrondissement in Paris.
A huge crowd gathered slowly and when the game started the place was packed. 10 german supporters in the middle of 150 argentinian fans. The game itself was torture, lasting 114min before the deliverance was finally served by Götze. Before that, the tension was incredible. A string of near misses on both sides made it hard to eat & drink. You could read the tension on the people’s faces everywhere. Especially our little team that was so sure that Germany would win easily after the 7:1 score the Mannschaft hit on the brazilian team showed tense faces. Noone wanted that world cup to end with the russian roulette of penalty shots.
Finally the german team scored and we all jumped to the ceiling. The last 6mn to the end of the game were terrible. But at least they went by fast. From there our little team jumped & screamed & cried for 10 minutes. So happy we were, so deceived were all the others. Within 5mn the entire pub was empty and we ended up being pushed gently to the door because the place was closing.
Anyway, we ended up in an irish bar near Montparnasse and enjoyed a few more beers celebrating. It was definitely a nice evening and I was happy to share it with all the people.
