5 World Cup final storylines to watch

Argentina advanced past the Netherlands in the semifinal shootout thanks to two key saves from goalkeeper Sergio Romero. The South American powerhouse returns to its first World Cup final since 1990 to (again) face Germany on Sunday.

Here are the five major storylines to keep an eye on ahead of Sunday's showdown in Rio de Janeiro.

• This is the third meeting between Germany and Argentina at a World Cup final, marking the first time two teams have met three times in the final in World Cup history.

Germany won in 1990, while Argentina emerged victorious in 1986 behind Diego Maradona.

• Germany, who will be playing in their record eighth World Cup final, will look to break their final drought outside of Europe. The Germans lost both World Cup finals they played outside of Europe, falling to Brazil in the 2002 final in Japan and also losing to Argentina in 1986 in Mexico.

• Germany and Argentina will mark the 10th World Cup final between European and South American teams. The South American team won seven of the previous nine meetings.

Germany would become the first European team to win a World Cup hosted in North or South America. A South American team has won all seven World Cups held in the Americas before 2014.

Thomas Muller and Germany also faced Lionel Messi's Argentina at the 2010 World Cup, winning 4-0 in the quarterfinals.

• Germany will also look to make a different kind of history by ousting Argentina. The Germans would become the first team to ever eliminate an opponent at three consecutive World Cups.

Germany defeated Argentina 4-0 in the 2010 quarterfinals after eliminating Argentina on penalties in the 2006 quarters.

• This is the seventh time Germany and Argentina have met in the World Cup, which is tied for the most frequent meeting in World Cup history (joining Germany-Yugoslavia and Sweden-Brazil).
