Germany's World Cup victory over Argentina was especially sweet for one Fox Valley resident.
Frank Herzog, a native of Germany, invited his friends and neighbors to a World Cup party at his home in Appleton Sunday.
The home has been decorated with black, red and gold--the colors of the German flag--since the World Cup kicked off last month.
"Today is one of the great days of 2014. Soccer World Cup final! It took some time to convert them from American sports to love soccer, but as you can see, quite a few turned out to share this moment with me," said Herzog.
Germany defeated Argentina 1-0 in nail-biting fashion to take home the coveted trophy.
