NASA astronauts Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson, and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst of Germany are watching the 2014 FIFA World Cup action on the International Space Station via a stream set up aboard the station, it has been revealed.

The International Space Station (ISS) crew also released a video recently where they are seen playing soccer aboard the space station with limited gravity and along with that a message of good luck to the players, teams and fans for the game, CNet reported.

Though the astronauts come from different countries but they seem to be getting along fairly well, however, their multiyear friendship may face its toughest challenge yet on June 26, when the US and Germany will play to make it out of group play.
