Schweinsteiger was the second man to lift the trophy on Saturday night, and after the team took to the pitch for the celebrations, he jealously guarded the 8.5 kg silver cup for long spells, kissing and hugging it, closely studying the names of previous winners, and repeatedly hoisting it into the air. The midfielder was on appropriately good form when it came to the post-match party.

Q: Like your brother, you had a choice of playing for Germany or Ghana, your father’s homeland. He chose Ghana, you Germany. Why?
A: For me, it was Germany from Day 1. It is where I grew up, played for the youth teams. I do feel my African side, but I’ve always wanted to play for Germany. Every player must know for himself, you can’t look in their heads. Some maybe have more feelings for the country where they were born or where they’re more comfortable, like myself. To me, it only made sense to play for Germany.
