Germany won the World Cup for a fourth time after Mario Gotze's extra-time volley sealed a 1-0 win over Argentina in Sunday's final.

Argentina were preparing for a penalty shoot-out in the Maracana, but in the 113th minute Gotze chested down Andre Schurrle's superb cross and volleyed home to cap an historic victory for the jubilant Germans.

Germany are 5/1 favourites with Sky Bet to win the World Cup when the tournament arrives in Russia in 2018.

Argentina are second in the betting at 7/1 with Spain and Brazil following at 8/1 and 9/1 respectively.

You can get 16/1 for England to return from Russia with the trophy.

Euro 2016 takes place before that tournament and Germany are Sky Bet's 3/1 favourites to take the prize.

Spain and France are both available at 5/1, while England can be backed at 14/1 if you expect success for Roy Hodgson's men.
