Germany captain Philipp Lahm said the team's calmness and patience were key to beating Argentina 1-0 to clinch the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro.

The Bayern Munich defender told Fifa.com:

It's unbelievable what we have achieved. We improved throughout the tournament and didn't get down when things didn't always go our way.
