The FIFA World Cup 2014 ended with Germany beating Argentina in the final at Rio de Janeiro. Germany overcame the Lionel Messi-led Argentina to pull off their first World Cup victory in over two decades. Their last victory was, by coincidence, against the same opposition, led by the similarly — if not more — iconic Diego Maradonna. The 1-0 scoreline was the same as well.

Football is a sport that is keenly followed even by a number of cricketers, and as the German juggernaut beat their Argentine opponents, Twitter was abuzz with reactions from cricketers.

India’s 2011 ICC World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh tweeted,

Pakistan player Mohammad Hafeez mentioned that his son’s interest in the game was what prompted him to support the eventual runners-up.

Iain O’Brien seemed droll in his observation.

Allan Lamb seemed to support the Germans.

While England all-rounder Ravi Bopara felt for Lionel Messi.

Dinesh Karthik seemed cordial in his appreciation of the Deutschland victory.
