Today was the final match. I would had love that the champion would be the Argentine team. But Germany won and they are great champions. They deserve it and they got to give us one of the best World Cups since I remember. To say the truth the first World Cup I remember is the Final between Germany and Argentina in Italy 90. That time Germany won but it was a match intense, or at least I felt thus in an age where I didn’t even know where were those two countries in the maps. This happened again today, and although it wasn’t the same today I felt the same emotion. At least a great final! These last world cups the finals had been so boring, perhaps because players are deadly tired, but today was different.
The ninety minutes began with a game locked by the tactic scheme of both teams. But that couldn’t last: it’s the end of an entire and intense month and the body couldn’t endure so much to maintain the order. The game went to simply attack and defense. The first time Argentina was closer to win but they didn’t score the goal. In total Argentina had three clear chances to score and, it’s almost a football law, the goal you don’t score is the goal the rival score on you. Germany had two clear too, but they couldn’t. Not in the two halves. The first time ended with a potent Argentina and a solid Germany, Lavezzi has a great time.
The second time Sabella changed Lavezzi and el Kun entered but he wasn’t still with the body to play well in the match. Messi needed someone who could serve him the ball to score but he was needed back in the lines and that is not his natural function in my opinion. In Germany case I think the scheme that could give them the goal before was that Klose would enter in second time, in my opinion the German game needed first to score the goal and Klose wasn’t fit to the first minutes. Götze entered to the grass and almost quickly (in a game that ended fast) scored in the extra time at the 113 minute.
Germany 1 – Argentina 0.
Argentina tried but it seemed that the team wasn’t positive about the goal. They could win but they didn’t score and that’s what matters in football.
We have a new CHAMPION.
To Germany thanks to play so well, to show to the world that magic happens. That the team is important but also is the love to the sport, the love to win, and the love to the rich history of the country.
The statistics said that they couldn’t win upon Brazil, not even get a goal: they scored 7 in just one match; the statics said that a European team couldn’t win here in America and Germany won, and with a nice team that now has taken the Germany name to the Football History, again. Great merit to the team of Löw, the goalkeeper Neuer, to Lahm, Hummels, Boateng, Höwedes, Kramer, Schweinsteiger, Müller, Kroos, Özil, to Klose, Schürrle, Mertesacker, and to the German hero Götze. His goal motivated that the last minutes Argentina wanted more, and also avoided that the match ended with penalties, always is better to win playing.
In the future Germany is going to win again and is going to lose. But the Championship of today is to the eternity.
