(text video)

“Hello, I am Alexander and I come from Germany. My goosebump moment is Germany winning the Soccer World Cup in 2014. During the World Cup I was on vacation in the South of France. Together with my family we watched all the games. The first highlight was Germany beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals. But the main goosebump moment was still to come. Germany played Argentina in the finals. The game was very tense, and I was watching with my whole family. The game went into overtime and my nerves were close to a breaking point. It was the 113th minute when Schürle was running down the left side of the field. He played an amazing ball to the center, where Götze was standing. The ball bounced off his chest and he and he scored, and Germany went off to win the World Cup”.


Four-time champion in the land of samba

The German national team defeated Argentina in the final match of the 2014 World Cup, played on July 13, 2014, at the mythical Maracana stadium, located in Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil. A solitary goal by Götze in extra time gave the victory to the Germans.

It was undoubtedly the undisputed champion. The German National Team was the best team from start to finish in Brazil 2014 and won the World Cup title in a completely fair manner. The Nationalelf, coached by Joachim Löw, showed the best of their soccer on South American soil, including a 7-1 thrashing of the hosts.

Twenty-four years after the last World Cup they won, Germany knew they had to seize the moment to lift the gold trophy once again. In Brazil, the generation of Miroslav Klose, Per Mertesacker and Philipp Lahm would end a fine period with the Mannschaft. But first, they made history for their country.

Germany’s campaign

Germany kicked off the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with a 4-0 thrashing of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal on June 16 in Salvador. Five days later, Miroslav Klose equaled Ronaldo as the tournament’s all-time leading scorer in a hard-fought two-goal draw against Ghana. They closed the group stage with a quiet victory over the United States.

In sudden-death ties, Germany had their work cut out against Algeria, whom they eliminated in extra time. France had no weapons to overcome them, but the crowning moment came in the semifinals. Germany mercilessly thrashed hosts Brazil 7-1 at the Mineirao. After 29 minutes, the Europeans were already leading by five goals. That night, Klose became the top scorer in the World Cup.

If at the start they stunned Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo, on July 14, Germany celebrated the World Cup title in the face of Argentina’s Lionel Messi. A late goal by Mario Götze in the 113th minute put the fourth star on the Teutonic shield. Thus, they arrived at Russia 2018 as defending champions, and one of the favorites to keep the title.
