(NASA/CBS) - The World Cup match between the U.S. and Germany also meant a friendly competition among American and German astronauts on the International Space Station.

If the U.S. had won, the American crew members were going to draw a little U.S. flag on Alexander Gerst's head.

But Germany won, and astronaut Reid Wiseman upheld his end of the bargain.

Reid posted an image to Twitter and wrote, "Good game, Germany! Thanks for the shave."
