    That was exciting. Romero will relive that goal for the rest of his life. A little less lean to his right, and he might have had it.

    We watched the game at a local bar and grill with a mostly German audience. I didn't think either team would ever get a goal. It was fun. I didn't care who won, so it was good to just watch the game and enjoy the abilities of both teams.

    Yep, one of the best ones I've seen.

    Congrats Germany.

    I just watched the '66 final England v W Germany in grainy B&W ..... :)

    they've been playing a lot of older WC semis/finals in between the current games/replays.... good to hear the old names in the call.....

    Congratulations Germany - well deserved winners.

    My team of the tournament hasn't changed, even if Germany failed to burn quite so brightly last night.

    Any thoughts on Messi winning the Golden Ball? He didn't even cross my mind when thinking of the 11 best players, so am I missing something? Or was it as bad a decision as it seems?

    Eventually they made it. Well deserved. Argentina was hard to play and I'm happy that Germany's more modern football won over their old scool defensiveness.
    Götze's goal was wonderful and what a relieve.

    I wonder if the old Pope had a side bet with the new Pope?.... ;)

    They probably decided it before the tournament had actually begun. Mascherano deserved it more. Although Leighton Baines must have been a contender. :D

    BTW to all american friends here: Germany's way to this Championship started 10 years ago - with Klinsmann. Yes, you can!

    A good - if not great - final graced by a wonderful goal!

    Germany were indeed worthy winners and the best team in the tournament.

    Maybe in 2018 England will improve and actually win a game? :eek:

    Yeah, you're right. England might not even qualify.

    I should set realistic expectations now. :cry:

    1. German football establishment proves in-sourcing works. - world take note!

    2. Best 'team' however = U.S.A without a doubt. (USA played with all heart and belief and reminded us of how England used to be 25+ years ago. Best team to watch)

    The defensive game on both sides was really tough. They kept really tight quarters around ball movement, making it difficult for offensive maneuvering of almost any sort. Both teams relied heavily on mistakes to create opportunity, a couple of which were glaring, but not too many mistakes all in all. The German goal was really impressive and German fans had a feeling that Schürrle would be involved in the creation of something of that sort on some level if Germany was going to win, and it was a beautiful pass. This is the first time my favored team has won, so I'm ecstatic.

    Anybody remember Soccer Made in Germany, or the announcer Toby Charles?

    It was an exciting cup on many levels.

    The USA team shows some real promise. Four years is not too far away and we have the resources and talent in spades. We just need to create a stronger network for development, communication, and cohesion; which is not a small feat with a country this size. The next four years will show a marked improvement in our world standing, I believe.

    To all the people of Germany , wir freuen uns sehr!

    We have Klinsmann under contract through the '18 cup. Perhaps to complete your analogy you can loan us Loew next.
