Fair ending. Germany was the best team on the tournament so deserved this.

 

While Brazil has one more title, in my book from today Germany is the biggest footballing nation on the planet:

 Out of 18 World Cups, they were in 13 semifinals.

 Out of 18 World Cups, they were in 8 finals.

 

Now 4 titles and the most 3th finishes as well.

 

As Lineker once said:

Football is a sport where 11 players play against 11 players and Germany always wins.

 

Congratulations (also lold at how Brazil's president gave the trophy to Lahm--- guess who is losing,the next elections in Brazil lololol)

I don't know how some situations are perceived in different parts of the world...
 
In Argentina a situation like this one is perceived as a penalty

Funny, I recall a sort-like action on the other side, just with the keeper going in leg stretched!

 

Both players were in the right to go to the ball, the German goalie might have come in hard but he also couldn't have come in way harder and still be in the right. They were both watching the ball and ignoring eachother, obstruction of the goalie in the 16 trumps obstructing an attacker.

Germany has been the most consistent throughout the tournament, and they played creative, attacking football, so I'm happy they won.

 

Overall a very exciting world cup, better than the one of 4 years ago.

Yeah, the keeper could have had a gun and he could have shot the Argentinean player 10 times and the referee would still perceive that the Argentinean player "attacked" the German keeper....  :war:

Well I would have given the ball to the Argentina's on the side (corner or throw-in). Blame the rules.

German's keeper played the ball first.  Once a keeper has played the ball, it's illegal to challenge him, which basically means that the keeper can bash through pretty much anyone he wants so long as he plays the ball as part of that action.

So many 0-0's in this tournament. The group stage was AMAZING. Knockout rounds? Boring.
