Preparation has been the key so far to the success of Germany's football team in the World Cup in Brazil, and that forward planning has extended to choosing where to celebrate, should Germany be crowned champions on Sunday.

Frankfurt am Main is where the German football team traditional celebrates tournament victories, but the German Football Association (DFB) announced on Thursday that Berlin has supplanted Frankfurt as the venue, should Joachim Löw’s side become World Champions.

DFB President Wolfgang Niersbach said: “The fan mile [in Berlin] would be an ideal place to say thank you to the fans from all of Germany for their sensational support in case of a World Cup win, if only because there is enough room at the Brandenburg Gate."
