With India looking to open their World Cup campaign successfully tomorrow, Germany and Bayern Munich footballer Thomas Mueller posted a picture of himself in an India jersey and football fans in the country were ecstatic.
In a tweet posted last evening, Mueller said that while he wants to wish luck to all the teams; he has his fingers crossed for Virat Kohli and his team. He also noted how Kohli has been a supporter of the German football team in the past.
I wish all participants of the Cricket #WorldCup2019 good luck & thrilling matches. Especially I cross my fingers for @imVkohli, the captain of the Indian team. He`s a fan of @DFB_Team and supported it multiple times in the past 🏏✊😃 #Cricket #GermanyCheersForIndia #esmuellert pic.twitter.com/hwS4apAlIE— Thomas Müller (@esmuellert_) June 3, 2019
Muller is the second big name from football, after Chelsea’s David Luiz, to throw his weight behind the team and Indians are really excited about this.
