Germany printed World Cup victory stamps BEFORE yesterday's match started

Now that's faith.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Germany's Deutsche Post AG took a gamble on the outcome of the World Cup final — and it paid off.

Before the match even began the former state monopoly had printed five million stamps commemorating Germany's fourth World Cup title after 1954, 1974 and 1990.

Had Germany lost to Argentina, the stamps would have had to be pulped.

The 0.60 cents ($0.82) stamps [above] were presented Monday, just hours after Mario Goetze's late goal in extra time sealed Germany's 1-0 victory.
