RIO DE JANEIRO - Germany's World Cup winning players have partied long through the Brazilian night after Monday's 1-0 final win handed the nation a fourth title.

"We're the number one in the world," sang the ecstatic players at the team hotel in Rio.

"I don't know what will happen but I know Rio will not sleep in any case," said forward Lukas Podolski.

Germany beat Argentina 1-0 in extra time to become the first European team to win a World Cup held in South America.

The team's celebrations which began with the full-time whistle at Rio's Maracana will end in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate Fan Mile yesterday.

"I think this deep feeling of happiness will last for all eternity," said coach Joachim Loew, who joins an exclusive four-man club to have led Germany to the world title.

Sepp Herberger (1954), Helmut Schoen (1974) and Franz Beckenbauer (1990) are already members.
