Germany has won the 2014 World Cup following a 1-0 victory against Argentina in extra time. After a slow start, it was probably a deserved victory for the German's, who become the first European side to win the competition outside of their home continent. Mario Goetze got the only goal of the game, with seven minutes remaining, with an excellent finish, however, Argentina will be left to rue missing three very good chances, which should have wrapped up the match for them in normal time.

21:26 GMT:

Mario Goetze could just have made himself the toast of Germany, with seven minutes to go in extra time. Germany lead Argentina 1-0. He chested down Schurlle's cross and pokes an excellent finish past Romero into the right-hand side of the net!

Aguero is very lucky to get away without a yellow card, which would have met the Manchester City forward would have been sent-off for a second bookable offense. Germany's Bastian Schweinsteiger has blood streaming from his face after he was caught by the Argentinian's swinging arm. Still 0-0 with around 10 minutes left in extra time.

21:05 GMT:

Argentina create another very good opportunity, Palacio was put through by a fantastic ball by Rojo, however, the Inter Milan's first touch was heavy and then for some reason he tried to lift the ball over Neuer, which gave the German defense time to get back and clear. That is three excellent chances Argentina have had in this game.
