Are you a fan of Instagram? Yeah, me neither. But you can’t deny the attempt it has made at bridging gaps, both communication ones and social. Instagram didn’t exist during the 2010 World Cup. And even though we were in ‘advancing technology’ mode four year back, now in 2014 it looks like we’re only getting better, and players are getting more…personal.
The German national team jetted off to Brazil, with hopes of returning with an 18 carat gold item in their hands. And as they set on this journey to realise their dream, they remembered to take time out and allow the fans in on the action. Instagram was taken over by German players for a brief period, posting pictures from inside their flight heading to South America.
Ozil, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Podolski, Howedes, Draxler, Weidenfeller & more feature in these set of pictures. On a side note, surely I wasn’t the only one who saw Sacha Baron Cohen in these pics, did I?
