I invited a couple of friends over on Sunday to watch the match together (In Indonesian term, it’s called ‘nobar’ – nonton bareng). It’s World Cup final. It’s celebrated by pretty much everyone. It’s difficult to say no to, obviously. So I managed to gather 6 people in total. My apartment is in a quiet area, 6 people is already a lot.
So there we were, watching, 4 to 2 are rooting for Germany. It was already the extra time, and score was still 0-0, when we heard screaming and shouting from across the street. We were not the only people watching the match. It happened that we watched a streaming channel, and it was lagging… We all were like… ‘what?!? who scored?!? if this one is not a goal, the next one will be the other team’s goal’ No, it’s not, . Our phones were buzzing. Messages and notifications from friends fortunate enough to watch the match live, and was able to follow the scores on a more timely manner. We put our phone out of reach. Not wanting to ruin the ‘surprise’. And finally we witness Goetze scored a goal. One of the few last substitute in the match (good job Joachim Löw). ‘Super Mario’ scored the single goal that secure Germany the World Cup 2014 in 113th minute strike.
