Germany is the 2014 World Cup champion

It was surely one of the best match I’ve seen in my life. As a so-so football fan, it was the best decision ever to went to the viewing party at Kelana Jaya, well, since I am a hardcore HyppTV user. (HyppTV don’t get to air the World Cup 2014 match even if it was aired from TV1)

Quoting from Reuters as what other bloggers do/did:

Germany are champions of the world again after snatching victory against Argentina in the soccer showpiece with a superb extra-time goal from baby-faced Mario Goetze to lift the trophy for the first time since 1990.

Hatched from the agony of their recent near-misses, Germany’s triumph secured a fourth World Cup title – their first since the country was reunited 24 years ago – with a nail-biting 1-0 win in Sunday’s final at the sprawling Maracana.

The win, sealed by substitute Goetze’s brilliantly taken strike in the 113th minute, marked the first time a European country had won the sport’s greatest prize in the Americas, although this World Cup was ultimately a triumph for all.

Congrats, Germany!

P/S: My first real blog post, finally.
