The team had just humiliated Brazil by an astounding 7-1 score in the 2014 World Cup Semifinal match. But the Finals match would prove a far more difficult test. Billed by many as the world's most talented team facing the world's most talented player, Germany had its hands full with Argentina and the iconic Messi. However, it was Germany's 22-year old Mario Götze, a German football protege and Bayern Munich star who would be the difference-maker. A substitute in the 88th minute, he would score this, the only goal of the match in the 113th minute, controlling André Schürrle's cross with his chest, and then completing the perfect left foot volley to give Germany its fourth World Cup.
