They all cheered for Germany
Barbados may be Brazil country, but you couldn’t tell on Sunday. It wasn’t quite Berlin, yet Bubba’s still felt like the capital for all Deutschland support as German soccer fans stormed the south coast venue by the hundreds to watch their side lift yet another World Cup trophy.
From the waving of black, red and yellow flags down to the donning of white jerseys, there was no doubt who most of the 900 strong patrons came to watch once the opening whistle blew.
And if there was any speculation, that was all cleared up by the time Mario Götze expertly slotted home the late winner, with both the restaurant and adjacent outside tent erupting in pure jubilation at the sight of the deciding strike.
Two jersey-wearing fans couldn’t hold back their joy to the point where they charged around both restaurant floors with their team’s national flag in hand.
Not that the fairer sex was to be left out of the fanfare, as Germany had their fair share of female fans dressed in black or World Cup jerseys of their own brandishing the flying eagle. (JM)
