Here’s The German World Cup Team Hanging Out With Native Brazilians

A friendly little cultural exchange.

The German team on Monday received a special visit during training on an isolated patch of land in Bahia. Natives from the Pataxó village, who live near the training base, danced, sang, and played soccer with the players.

And the photos from this encounter are pretty fun.
