In Australia, joy erupted among Argentinian fans at the World Cup venues in Sydney and Melbourne.
The game ended just before 5 a.m. in the eastern states as fans lit flares and hugged.
Celebrations continued throughout the morning as groups of Argentinian fans swept through Sydney’s lower business district after exiting the live TV site near the Opera House.
But that was nothing compared to the streets of Buenos Aires, where hundreds of thousands let their hair down in wild scenes of total rejoicing.
Meanwhile, Sunrise saw hilarious scenes as reporter Nathan Currie lost himself in a crowd of passionate fans.
The Melbourne-based reporter struggled to get his say in celebration mode during a live crossroads with a sea of passionate Argentinian fans.
“We’re going live to Nathan Currie, who may or may not be able to hear me,” said co-host Matt Doran of Sydney’s Brekky Central.
“Nathan, take it away.”
“Let these guys take it away,” Nathan said mistakenly, “make sure they…”
Nathan was drowned out by the roar of the celebrating crowd – and the camera.
Trying to hear the presenters in the studio, Nathan raised his hand to his earpiece as he tried to continue.
He was presented with a replica trophy by an Argentinian fan, which the fan and reporter held up in triumph.
We have the World Cup here…” Nathan began.
“Oh my,” Matt said from the studio, watching Nathan disappear into the sea of fans.
Finally, the moderator was just spotted trying to find his way back to the camera.
“Sometimes you say everything without really saying anything,” Matt laughed at Nathan’s silence.
