It wasn't just on the pitch where the Germans won during this World Cup -- the nation's web presence was exemplary too. Internet and cloud performance trackers Keynote found that of 44 national and sponsor sites associated with the World Cup, the German Football Association's homepage performed the best. It achieved a 99 per cent load success rate, compared to the 75.61 per cent success rate of the USA FA site and 95.86 success rate of the Brazilian FA site. That's impressive, especially considering the German site likely got a hammering as the cup-winning team stormed through all stages of the tournament.
