German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in the Brazilian city of Salvador on Monday with one very clear message for Germany’s football team: “We want to win.”

As she watched a group of children practise their football skills, Merkel was asked how she thought the game against Portugal would go. “We want to win,” she said.

And Germany did: 4-0.

Merkel is coming to the end of a two-day visit to Brazil, which included a meeting with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.
