By now, if you’re a fan, you should have been celebrating the victory of Germany over Argentina for this year’s biggest and emotional World Cup series held in Brazil. Too bad, the host country’s national football team five-time winners did not make it this year. Germany humiliated Brazil by beating them 7-1 on Tuesday. That was intense for Brazil’s fans that sparked a few fights afterwards between Brazil fans and Argentina fans. But surprisingly,  Neymar, Jr. routed for Argentina after their failed attempt to bring home the gold. Neymar, Brazil’s superstar striker, spoke during a press conference, on how he admires Messi and Mascherano playing skills, who were both Argentine players.

And Germany? Well, they’ll be having quite a numbers of celebration once they go back home. “A team that has been developed on the job at several major tournaments finally came good to outlast the competition in Brazil. That Germany sits atop the final standings from the competition is a justified billing. They played the best, most expansive football of any team at the tournament,” according to bleacherreport.com.

But what about that we did hear that Germany won’t be able to bring home the 18k gold trophy? That’s right, because as a rule “FIFA’s regulations now state that the trophy, unlike its predecessor, cannot be won outright: the winners of the tournament receive a replica which is gold plated rather than solid gold.”

And who do you guessed Germany’s Mario Gotze‘s idol? Me, the German Messi? No, I want to be the Cristiano Ronaldo of Germany,” said Gotze in 2013.

It was a fitting goal to win the World Cup. Gotze's 113th-minute strike owed much to the industry of Andre Schurrle on the left, but his composed finish was unrivalled on a night of missed chances. A beautiful take on his chest and a fine volley past the despairing Sergio Romero, all in one fluid movement. He was as relaxed as a player stroking home a simple finish on the training pitch.
