Photo: Angela Merkel poses with Germany squad after Portugal victory

After watching her lads rout Portugal 4-0 in their opening Group G fixture, German chancellor Angela Merkel ventured down to the dressing room at the Arena Fonte Nova and posed for a group photo with her Nationalmannschaft.

Indeed, not satisfied with a mere group shot, Lukas Podolski then ventured to nab himself an altogether rarer celebratory selfie with the chancellor too, which he duly posted on Twitter.

As World Cup souvenirs go, that one's not half bad!
