  • A late Mario Gotze goal has secured Germany's fourth world title. A superbly taken goal worthy of winning any game. After a 24-year wait, Germany have won the World Cup. It wasn't meant to be for Lionel Messi's Argentina, with the Barcelona man failing to star. Thanks for joining me on a dramatic evening in Rio de Janeiro.

  • FULL TIME! GERMANY ARE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD! THEY HAVE WON THE 2014 WORLD CUP!

    120+3
  • Messi's free-kick flies wildly over the bar, and it really sums up his night. It just hasn't happened for him tonight, and Germany are moments away from winning the World Cup.

    120+2
  • Two minutes of added time, as Argentina get a free-kick 30 yards from goal as Schweinsteiger fouls Messi. Last chance saloon for Sabella's side.

    120
  • Per Mertesacker comes on for Mesut Ozil (Germany).

    119
  • Muller barges through two Argentinian challenges and runs in towards goal. He attempts a cut-back towards Gotze but it's over-hit and it flies across the area, and out for a throw-in to Argentina.

    119
  • Rojo plays it towards an onrushing Messi, free in the area, who heads it towards the German goal but it's rising and it eventually floats over the bar for a goal-kick.

    118
  • Magnificent goalkeeping from Neuer! The ball pops out towards Rojo in the area, but Neuer sprints out and collects the ball before the left-back can have a shot on goal. He's commanded his area superbly throughout this game, and the tournament in general.

    118
  • Rojo delivers a great ball into the area, but Hummels manages to clear it and it falls into the path of Biglia, but he passes to Messi rather than shooting. His pass is over-hit, and Germany get a throw-in.

    117
  • The Maracana has absolutely burst into life, and a fourth world title is near. Argentina have five minutes to salvage an equaliser.

    115
  • A superb run from Schurrle on the left hand side as he takes on a couple of Argentinian defenders, and he delivers a sumptuous ball into the path of Gotze, who chests and volleys the ball beyond a sprawling Romero from five yards out. What a superb finish that is. Has he just won the World Cup for Germany?

    113
  • GOAL FOR GERMANY! MARIO GOTZE SCORES! 1-0 TO GERMANY!

    113
  • Sami Khedira, on the touchline, is absolutely furious that Aguero has been allowed to continue. However, the game continues with Germany continuing to command possession.

    111
  • Gotze fires in the free-kick towards the Argentine area, with both Muller and Demichelis clashing heads. Both have seemingly avoided serious injuries, however.

    110
  • Aguero goes up for a header with Schweinsteiger, and catches the German midfielder in the face with a flying arm. Germany get a free-kick and Aguero, already booked, avoids a second yellow. He's very fortunate to avoid a sending off, as replays show Schweinsteiger is bleeding heavily.

    109
  • Kroos' resulting free-kick is swung into the area, but cleared comfortably by Demichelis, who's defended superbly throughout this game.

    108
  • A strange moment, as Schweinsteiger is caught by both Biglia and Mascherano midway through the Argentine half. Referee avoids booking the duo, with Mascherano already on a yellow card.

    107
  • Argentina get the second half of extra time underway!

    105
  • The referee signals the end of the first 15 minutes of extra time. It remains goalless.

    105
  • The game has quietened down significantly as both sides show understandable signs of tiredness and fatigue.
