The result was a big hit at the Germany Embassy and the home of Hendrik Zimmer, a member of international football club Copenhagen Celtic.

While Viola, 3, fell asleep during the first half, Vincent, 7, was allowed to stay up well past his bedtime to watch the whole match and savour the winning goal by 'super' Mario Götze.
