Now that the World Cup 2014 round of 16 is over, it is time for the quarter-finals, and the first match will see two European powerhouses — France and Germany — go head-to-head. With the anticipation reaching fever pitch, Google has put an animated doodle on its homepage. The animated doodle shows two beach houses being painted in the team’s colors. The house owners then call out their dogs and head inside to watch the match.
The age-old rivals have won the World Cup before — with Germany having won it thrice and France once — and will look to secure a berth in the semi-finals. The teams have been in good form and are yet to be beaten in the tournament so far. We can expect a tense match with plenty of end-to-end attacking football.
France vs Germany quarter-finals kicks off tonight at 09:30PM IST.
