Soccer – Germany Wins The World Cup

Posted on July 14, 2014 in Professional Sports News.

Mario Gotze scored in the second period of extra time on Sunday to lift Germany to its fourth World Cup title with a 1-0 victory over Argentina at the Maracana.

It was a titanic clash between two soccer giants for 90 regulation minutes as the sides traded quality scoring opportunities in the third-ever meeting between the two nations at the World Cup final.

The victory is Germany’s first major international trophy since winning the 1996 European Championship, and first World Cup title since 1990 when they defeated Argentina at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
