Expectations were there and were fulfilled. It was the day for Germany and it was the day for Argentina – based on their performances – and thankfully, the luck factor has not much to talk about – there had to be a winner – and we have the winner now, in Germany – the 4th World Cup Crown to the European team – the first team to snatch the victory and the World Cup title in a South American nation.
There were no dull moments. There is nothing slack on the moves to talk about. The First Half was brilliant. The Second Half was equally brilliant. The Extra Time was brilliant as well.
There were Messi and Muller and other moments in the first half and there were rush to score and grab the ball. There were two Yellow Cards in quick succession. The goalkeepers were on the job. The defence line was on the job. The attack was as sharp as expected. Moves were made, chances were created and chances were blocked. The flow continued and bettered it in the Second Half.
By the Half Time – the Argentine jersey, the Blue and the German jersey, the White – had given us the Game that was bright – on a Beautiful Bight – of the World Cup 2014 final —
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:
23h – Germany Vs Argentina – to begin in 7 minutes from now – the game of many ‘Vs’s – the match of the grand moment – 🙂 —
23h – Germany Vs Argentina – 15 minutes into the game – one Messi moment and one Muller moment leading the pack so far —

So, it is coming to its end tomorrow (India time). The final match of the FIFA World Cup 2014 begins at 12:30 AM India time.
And what a quality time it has been – a beautiful month of adventure on the field – with World Cup category thrill – packed with moments of shock, surprise, joy and distress – the elevating high points, the saddening low points and the maddening no-brainers – it gave us all what a World Cup should have.
I was never a Football fan but I always loved the World Cup. I used to be crazy for Cricket in my college days. That love is not anymore. Cricket event doesn’t register now.
But the love for the FIFA World Cup and some other major Football events has grown significantly and I realized during this edition of the event.
Yes, it is not possible to catch every match and accordingly, I had my own priority list and I could watch most on the list.
