Germany wins World Cup

RIO DE JANEIRO – Germany became World Cup champion for the fourth time on Sunday night, and the first European team in history to clinch soccer's greatest prize on South American soil. It did so courtesy of a winner deep into extra time from substitute Mario Goetze, who displayed a brilliant piece of skill to decide a contest of outstanding quality. Goetze took a pass from the left from Andre Schurrle in the 113th minute of action, trapped it on his chest and swiveled it past Sergio Romero and into the Argentina net. The goal proved to be enough to give Germany a 1-0 victory. "For us, it really is a dream come true," Goetze said. "I'm more than happy and I'm happy with the team and what happened here in Brazil. I guess it's more or less indescribable how I feel. It is absolutely sensational."
