Thousands of Qatar residents flocked to football fan zones, coffee shops and friends’ homes across the country last night as Argentina and Germany faced off in the 2014 World Cup Finals.
It took 112 long minutes for Germany to break the stalemate, with Mario Goetze scoring a goal in extra-time, and helping his team win their fourth World Cup.
Reactions in Qatar were mixed to the news, but everyone appeared to agree that it was better to celebrate/commiserate together.
At the Brazil 2014 fan zones at Katara and Aspire, residents described a cool experience, literally.
Because crowds didn’t begin dispersing until after 1am last night, there are many bleary-eyed residents at work this morning:
I feel your pain! @LibyaLiberty: I stayed up late to watch the game, my team lost,got 2 hours of sleep in,& now I'm at work,fasting.
