It is a humbling experience for a fiercely loyal Englishman to say this, but…Congratulations to the Germans for winning the World Cup for the fourth time! What makes saying this a little easier is the fact that it was absolutely deserved, they were simply the best team in the tournament. Yes, Brazil had Neymar, Portugal had Ronaldo and Argentina had the enigmatic Messi, but what proved to be crucial was that Germany possessed a TEAM! Germany were a team of disciplined, talented individuals that fully realised the potential of a team effort. Their team fell into place at the right time with the match being won in extra time by their young star Mario Gotze, a young talent who completed a great move in excellent style by controlling a cross on his chest and driving it into the side netting with a perfectly executed volley.
Job done Germany, well done.
