I will never forget the very moment in the Maracana stadium in which I was allowed to lift the World Cup trophy. It’s starting to sink in, slowly, but steadily, that we have finally made it. Actually: All the effort, concentration, stuggle has paid off. All the pressure disappeared. Basti, Miro, Per, Thomas and Manuel were approaching me, saying thank you, it was coming from the bottom of their hearts, that means a lot to me. I’m not that kind of person that forgets everything around them during celebrations, but being World Champion feels indescribably wonderful.
