Germany wins World Cup after 1-0 victory over Argentina

Germany has claimed a fourth World Cup crown in a 1-0 win against Argentina in Rio de Janeiro. Substitute Mario Goetze’s late goal in extra-time secured his team’s win on Sunday night.

Goetze, who had been a late substitute in this game himself, took a ball over his shoulder from Andre Schurrle and volleyed it home in the 113th minute to beat Argentine keeper Sergio Romero.

With that triumph Germany has become the first European nation to win the trophy outside of their home continent, which led to jubilant scenes both on the pitch and back home, with millions of fans celebrating their feat.
