A game to the level of a World Cup final was expected and it was delivered. It was brilliant. It was magnificent. It was full of smooth and rough moves and it oozed the Football power. It remained goalless and suddenly it came, in a heart-stopping moment that was well earned by Mario Gotze.
And it came in the 114th minute – with a memorable trail behind it – with the heat and the pulse of the day punching action-packed moves regularly:
