After Germany defeated Brazil in such a resounding fashion on Thursday, many were pondering why Argentina would even show up.  However, while Germany bested Brazil by an unbelievable 7-1 score on Tuesday, the result today was much closer. 

In fact, the two teams were tied at 0 following regulation play, and headed to extra time.  With seven minutes left in extra time, Mario Gotze of Germany scored the game winning goal, giving his team victtory in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.  

This marks Germany's fourth World Cup title, and makes them the first European team ever to win the Cup in South America.  

In yesterday's third place match, the Netherlands was able to best Brazil in a dominant fashion.  The final score n that game was 3-0.

Not on only in South America but in the western hemisphere!

Anyway...  I think we all breathed a sigh of relief when that goal went in.  No one wants to see it decided on PK's....

Overall a good fun tournament.  One of the better ones I can remember.   The one thing that would have made it a little better would be to have had a real underdog advance to the final or even the semi final.

Still...  This is by far the greatest sporting event on the planet.  Sucks that we have to wait another for years...    See you in Russia for 2018!
