Nothing can make a footballer go crazy than winning the biggest prize on offer.

So, after Germany beat Argetina to win the FIFA World Cup on Sunday, Germany's forward Lucas Podolski went on a selfie spree after the West Europeans won their first World Cup win in 24 years.

Going by Podolski's Twitter handle, his 'partner in crime' was teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger.

They then partied the night away with Schweinsteiger taking the revelry a step further by planting a kiss on Rihanna's cheek, just for the camera!
