Arsenal's outstanding young midfielder Aaron Ramsey was eager to be among the first to congratulate his club teammates after their World Cup win in Brazil.
After Mario Gotze's extra time strike sealed a tight final with Argentina in Rio de Janeiro, Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski are all set to return to the Emirates as World Cup winners, the dream of every footballer and supporter.
Ramsey and his fellow Gunners stars only recently tasted domestic success after winning the FA Cup in May to end a barren spell without silverware, and everyone connected with the club will be hoping that that, alongside the success of a German side boasting three Arsenal players, will prove infectious to the Londoners.
The Welshman had before the match wished the players luck, urging them to return to England as champs, and he will be happy to see his teammates to the club proud.
With rumours that Sami Khedira could be about to join Arsene Wenger's FA Cup winners, as well as the arrival of Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez, there is set to be a real winning mentality at the club, which may well fire Arsenal into their strongest football season in years.
