Germany 1 x 0 Argentina ● 2014 World Cup Final Extended Goals & Highlights HD
Whispers would be heard on the other side of the stadium if someone dared to open their mouths in the 20 minutes of the first half, in those two or three seconds of collective silence in which Higuaín received a gift ball from Toni Kroos and, alone, advanced with it towards Neuer. There are chances that are not lost even in family football, let alone in a World Cup final, but the Argentine striker, perhaps stunned by the opportunity he had won, perhaps wondering if he deserved so much, committed the insanity of wasting the goal.The problem is that football has a bit of a grudge. The same Higuaín, a few minutes later, entered the area like a truck without brakes, took advantage of Lavezzi's crossing, from the right, and sent it to the nets. He went out in a flutter, running like a guy who would go around the world if the Maracanã had no walls, but then his roof collapsed: on the other side, the assistant, that attackers' pleasure cutter, had his flag raised. Correct: the attacker was in fact blocked.The big question is that the two moves, plus a stunning run by Messi (cut by a Boateng that only needs a pair of wings to be declared team angel), show that there was something wrong in the solid German defensive kingdom. The problems started before the game started, strange as it may seem. Khedira, a key player in midfield gear, felt muscle pain in the warm-up. It was not in the field. In came Kramer, who had only played 11 minutes in the entire Cup and would also be injured, even in the first half, for Schürrle to enter.It is notable that Argentina did a very good first half - and it was not only thanks to the eternal discomfort caused by Messi and his shots of a thousand-legged man. Also for defense. And even if based on a curious strategy: let Schweinsteiger stroll through the countryside as if on vacation. Alejandro Sabella, for some reason, preferred to focus his attention on harassing the athletes served by shirt 7, not his own. The tactic seems suicidal, but it actually worked. However, it almost collapsed towards the end of the stage, when Höwedes climbed close to the stratosphere to head on the Argentine crossbar. On the rebound, the ball still hit Müller, and Romero saved, but the move was already canceled by impediment.The expectation of any human being fed with hopes is that Messi, when going to the locker room, will be affected by a crisis of piety and decide to stop making other people's defenses miserable. But it doesn't usually happen - it was Lavezzi who did not return, replaced by Agüero. With less than two minutes in the second, the Flea received in depth on the left and sent a cross kick that crossed the post protected by Neuer's gloves. Almost.Germany went into overtime drooling to win. In the first move of extra time, Schürrle almost scored. Romero spread the attacker's kick. Argentina, closed, made it clear that they would embrace counterattacks, and Europeans came to dominate the game - but without much force.But there was no randomness. There was talent. Schürrle, brilliant, made a great move and headed the area. Götze, while killing in the chest, found the ball and posterity at the same time. Sent it into the goal. Sent it into history - into the story of a huge four-time champion!Rptimao Videos: https://www.youtube.com/rptimaovideosRptimao TV: https://www.youtube.com/rptimaotvRptimao Videos 2: https://www.youtube.com/rptimaowww.instagram.com/rudacabralCopyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.
