    The German Football Association (DFB) announced Thursday that the German national football team wants to celebrate with supporters on the fan mile at the Brandenburg Gate after returning from Brazil if they become world champion.

    "The fan mile would be an ideal place to say thank you to the fans throughout Germany for the sensational support in case of a World Cup win, if only there is enough space at the Brandenburg Gate," said DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach to German local media.

    After the final game on Sunday in Rio de Janeiro against Argentina, the German national football team is planned to return to Germany on the morning of July 15.

    German media reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is also ready for the celebration with the players and she has already mentioned details of the celebration during a meeting at red town hall in Berlin.

    "We are very grateful for the great support from our fans," said the German national team manager Oliver Bierhoff to the local media. "This time we have decided to celebrate together with the fans only in the case of winning the title."

    In addition to Berlin, Frankfurt had also offered as a place for a possible celebration in case of a World Cup win.
