[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] The German capital of Berlin welcomed back the World Cup champions with 500,000 fans at the Brandenburg Gate and the players unveiled their new trophy with a stunt.

Thomas Mueller, Mats Hummels, Erik Durm and Christoph Kramer walked on stage, hiding their captain Philipp Lahm behind them, to give their fans a little surprise. Lahm popped out from behind his teammates with the World Cup trophy, and the players then began to entertain the crowd.



And more celebrations from Berlin:

    BOOOOOOO!!!! Had been slightly enamored with this team until this "GAUCHO WALK"... I have a very sour taste after watching this... BOOOOO ON GERMANY!!!! ......Racist or playful? The German soccer team’s ‘gaucho dance’ - The Washington Post... http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/07/16/racist-or-playful-the-german-soccer-teams-gaucho-dance/ At best, it is tasteless poor sportsmanship… why put down the other team? The defense of it, doesn't stand up... celebrating is one thing, but that does NOT include mocking, denegrating, berating as this Germany Team did is quite another... BAD ON YOU Germany (the team members who mocked in this way).... BOOO! It's only been a month, but I miss the humble Champions who were the best team of all time... they were a class act!
