Germany win World Cup beat Argentina 1-0

Rio de Janeiro: Mario Goetze’s superb 113th minute volley gave Germany their fourth World Cup title and their first since they became a unified country with a 1-0 win over four-time world footballer of the year Lionel Messi’s Argentina at the Maracana on Sunday.

Each side had chances during the match with Messi going agonisingly close in the 46th minute, scuffing his shot with the ball rolling just wide of the far post.

Argentina’s skipper Messi got an outstanding player of the tournament for his brilliant performance and also got a ‘Golden Ball’.

Germany’s goalkeeper Neure wins ‘Golden Glove’ for his performance and Colombia’s James Rodriguez wins ‘Golden Boot’ for his six goals during the FIFA World Cup 2014.
