Mario Götze scored in extra time to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup for Germany.

It took extra time to find a goal in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, but it was so spectacular that it needs to be seen over and over and over again.

Super Mario Götze scored the winner for Germany in the 113th minute to put the fourth star above the crest of Die Mannschaft's shirt. After a tense regulation where it felt like the Germans were in complete control of the game, there was always the possibility that Argentina would somehow sneak a goal on a counter. They nearly did on several occasions, but everyone's favorite sweeper keeper Manuel Neuer snuffed out chance after chance.

The win snaps a 24 year drought for Germany in this competition, and it's a well deserved world championship.

We were given a great image after the final whistle of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas Podolski, Philipp Lahm, and Thomas Müller in a big embrace. They were the best team in this competition. They deserved this trophy.

Germany are the world champions.
