At times, the World Cup appeared a battle of one-man teams:
And one by one they fell – to injury, to opponents, to hunger – until only one was left: Messi.
But Messi faced die Mannschaft:
Argentina had brought Messi, but Germany brought a Team.
Germany also brought Mario Gotze.
Gotze – substituted for Klose – scored the winning (and only) official goal of the match (113′).
Die Mannschaft hat Weltmeister bekommen.
