Schweinsteiger named Germany captain

Germany about an hour ago
Read
Jul 13, 2014

Reaction: Germany reigns supreme

Germany were crowned world champions for the fourth time after a stunning extra-time strike by substitute Mario Gotze secured a 1-0 victory over Argentina.

Germany struck in extra time to lock up a 1-0 victory against Argentina and their fourth World Cup title.

Here is how the interwebs reacted to Sunday's match:

Prematch: The stars are out

The Pope checked in, but he didn't make any predictions:

Post by .

The NBA theme continued:

But things just weren't the same on the ESPN set in Brazil:

First half: Who wants this one?

There was plenty of defense and quick breaks, while Lionel Messi (who else) had the first solid chance early in the half:

Meanwhile ...

Then, there was another incident that again continued the debate over FIFA concussion protocols. Christoph Kramer, who was a late addition to the lineup after Sami Khedira was injured during warm-ups, took a hit to the head during play. He returned to the match, only to leave a few minutes later:

The half played on ...

And then, Germany came oh-so-close before the half ended:

Germany's Benedikt Howedes nearly put his team in front right before half-time with a well struck header that came off the upright.

Halftime: The nerves building

This one scene from the match resonated with fans and tweeps:

Second half: OK, who really wants this one?

Messi again came out flying:

Attempt missed. Lionel Messi (Argentina) left footed shot from the left side of the box is close, but misses to the right. Assisted by Lucas Biglia with a through ball.

And another controversial play, when Manuel Neuer challenged Gonzalo Higuaín:

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer sends Argentina's Gonzalo Higuain to the ground with a forceful 50-50 challenge.

And again, the game played on. Still no goals at the 75th minute:

During the 88th minute, Miroslav Klose left the match. A likely end to an incredible international career:

We're going to exxxxtra time

Argentina's Rodrigo Palacio missed a splendid chance in the 98th minute.

Rodrigo Palacio was free in the box but he tries an audacious chip that goes well wide.

Cue the rat-tail jokes:

Back to the match:

And then ... BOOM:

Germany's Mario Gotze put his team in the lead with a brilliant individual effort in extra time.

And then, more BOOM:

Messi had one last chance on a free kick in the waning moments of extra time, but ...

FT: Germany wins!

And finally ...

We have to wait four years for the next men's World Cup in Russia. Discuss.
