It took a beautiful goal from Mario Gotze to decide the destination of the World Cup, but it was a finish that deserved to win the tournament for the Germans, who have been the best team out in Brazil. Congratulations.
Messi arrives late in the box, but his header goes just over the German bar. Not his day/tournament.
Mario Gotze has come off the bench to give Germany a dramatic lead, taking down a Schurle cross and then placing the ball beyond Romero.
Fifteen more minutes for you all. Will we see pens?
Everyone is quite tired.
