Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After 63 games and a month long soccer craze for the World Cup.

The drama in Brazil ended with a terrific finale, as Germany met Argentina for the FIFA World Cup trophy.

Who would prevail Germany's offensive juggernaut, or the stingy defense of Argentina?

Germany nearly scores just before halftime, watch this header attempt clank off the post, and then Sergio Romero makes the save for Argentina.

We were scoreless thru 90 minutes, so we head to extra time and in the 113th minute, Andre Schurrle passes to Mario Gotze, who plays it off his chest and kicks it in.

That holds up as the game winner, Germany wins the World Cup Final for the first time since 1990, 1-0.
