The big game held at Maracana Stadium was won by Germany’s Mario Goetze in extra-time.

Goetze controlled a cross with his chest in the 113th minute and volleyed the ball past goalkeeper Sergio Romero and inside the far post from five yards out.


“It’s an unbelievable feeling. I don’t know how to describe it. You just shoot that goal in, you don’t really know what’s happening,” said Goetze. “And then at the end of the match, having a party with the team, the whole country … it is for us, a dream come true.”

The goal gave Germany their fourth World Cup title, making them second with Italy on the list of all-time champions and behind Brazil’s five titles.
