What a game this was!

Remember my first WC final.

Listened as a kid as my Dad tuned to BBC World service in 1974, Germany v Holland.

Continue to RIP old man....

Tell that to James Rodriguez.

What exactly did James Rodrigues do? He scored a great goal and his movement was superb, but he left the tournament three matches agp



Then why not give it to Meuller who scored more goals, had more assists and also had the small lil trophy to show for it?

Looking at the ages of the German players, you can see they have the foundations to remain at the top for a few more years...with Spain BTW...

Watching the replays/highlights...

Boateng has got to be the MOM of this match.

Yes FIFA is currupt but you remain remorselessly stupid to see the crook that Keshi is. A man who simply traded a potential successful outing for dubious bonus sharing. What a clown. :idea:

It was only a matter of time before Argentina's anaemic attack came back to haunt them. None of Higuain, Aguero, Palacio, Lavezzi had a good tournament. At the end of the day Argentina scored only 1 goal in their last 320 minutes of action and just 2 goals in 450 minutes in the KO-stage.

They were set up to win today and had chance after chance but no one was in form. Higuain had been abysmal all tournament and his miss was just shocking. Palacio offered absolutely nothing all tournament and his miss was embarrassing.

Messi is my favorite player on the planet but he did not have a very good tournament. I had been questioning his work rate since the beginning of the tournament and today it was no different. Was he instructed by the manager to conserve his energy or did he decide that himself? Either way, his effectiveness was limited and while he helped Argentina get this far, he could have done more. Germany did not show him a lot of respect and gave him space to operate but he could not deliver. He wasted a golden chance in the 2nd half and had other good chances. I wonder if he put too much pressure on himself, or if he didnt adequately recover from his injuries this past season because he was not in top form in Brazil. I fear we may see a drop in form from him in the coming months and years. It'll be hard for him to maintain top fitness level with his busy schedule and I wonder if he'll have the motivation within him. He has Copa America duties the next 2 summers and then WCQ the 2 years after that so the guy is bound to slip up.

Props to the Germans. They deserved to win this WC and were logical winners in a WC where no team was really exceptional. They did well to overcome to the injuries to Khedira and Kramer and though they played with fire by giving the Argentines too much space to counter-attack, I gotta give them credit for coming out and playing attacking and risk-taking football from start to finish. Lets see if this is the start of a special run by the Germans where they win 2-3 major trophies in a row.
