Germany's world cup squad arrives back into the capital Berlin as heroes after beating Argentina 1-0 on Sunday to win the World Cup. Captain Philipp Lahm, trophy in hand, was the first to leave the plane, followed by Bastian Schweinsteiger wrapped in a German flag. Across town, tens of thousands of fans gathered in the city to congratulate the team. Many waited hours to catch a glimpse of the team as they made their way through the city. This may be the fourth time a German side has won the cup, but it's their first since 1990 and the first time a united Germany has lifted the trophy. Fans will now begin looking to Russia in 2018 for victory number five.
