Both teams had good chances to score in the first half, with Argentina blowing an excellent chance in the 30th minute when Toni Kroos made a mistaken pass back giving Higuain a one-on-one with the German goalie, though he put it wide to the left.   Gonzalo Higuain had one called back a little while later when he was flagged for off-sides.

The second half also saw a little more control from Argentina, but very few chances. At the end of regular time, Argentina had zero shots on goal, even if they had a couple more good opportunities than Germany.

Mario Goetze puts Germany on top with a beautiful volley after chesting down a great pass from Andre Schurrle in the second extra period at 113 minutes.  Germany survives a number of last chance tries from Argentina to win the World Cup!
