Germany has won the Brazilian World Cup that started amid fears over protests and became the first European side to win the World Cup on South American soil with a long awaited goal in a 1-0 victory against Argentina.
Mario Götze, the Bayern Munich player, 22, who came on as a substitute, delivered a worthy strike to secure his exciting side their fourth World Cup and their first major tournament victory since 1996.
Neither side was able to score in normal time, which sent the game into 30 minutes of extra time.
Germany's Manuel Neuer won the World Cup Golden Glove award for the tournament's best goalkeeper. Neuer was beaten only four times in the tournament and kept clean sheets in the 1-0 quarter-final win over France and the victory over Argentina in the final.
Argentina’s Lionel Messi has been awarded the Golden Ball at World Cup 2014.
