Following Mario Goetze’s extra-time goal which helped Germany to a 1-0 win over Argentina in the World Cup final, Joachim Loew’s men partied long into the night, with some of his players taking the opportunity to celebrate with pop star Rihanna.

The Barbados-born singer has made no secret of her love for football and had kept her 36 million followers on Twitter entertained throughout the World Cup with her views on matches and players. So it came as no surprise to see Rihanna in the stands for the final at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

Though she had often showed her support for host nation Brazil during the tournament, ‘RiRi’ was fully behind the Germans in the showpiece final having earlier posted on Twitter an image of her in a Germany-inspired swimsuit.

Tweeting her support for Germany throughout the game, the singer then had the chance to revel in the post-match celebrations and did so by posting a number of photos with the World Cup winners.

Clutching the replica Jules Rimet trophy in her hand, Rihanna was showered in kisses by Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski and Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger before moving onto goalscorer Mario Goetze.
