It was indeed a nail biting event as it took more than official game minutes before the World Cup Champions were decided this year as neither Germany nor Argentina was able to score a goal during the official 90 minutes of match time.

This was Götze’s 11th goal for the 2014 World Cup truly an amazing effort and big finish for team Germany after a hard fought competition. Up to date, this is Germany’s 4th World Cup win with their last dating back in 1990.
Team Argentina had Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain attempting to score for them but their determined efforts were not able to succeed. Higuain even collided with Manuel Neuer from Germany and was called for a foul because of it.
