Int'l Media Reacts To Germany Winning Fourth World Cup Title With Win Over Argentina

Germany won its fourth World Cup title with a 1-0 victory in extra time against Argentina at Rio's Maracanã stadium on Sunday. Int'l media outlets celebrated Germany's World Cup performance, which included Miroslav Klose becoming the all-time scoring leader in World Cup history, "Die Mannschaft" becoming the first European team to win a title in the Americas and Germany joining Brazil and Italy as the only nations to have won the competition at least four times. Germany's BILD newspaper compiled a list of int'l media reactions (BILD, 7/14). The following is an excerpt:

  • GLOBOESPORTE titled, "Mariocanazo"
  • O GLOBO said, "For the history"
  • Sports newspaper LANCE! wrote, "With Brazilians in its heart Germany becomes four-time World Cup winner"
  • EL PAIS wrote, "Germany needed 120 minutes, a lot of sweat and the marksmanship of Götze, who barely appeared in the World Cup until then, for its fourth World Cup title. Argentina had a solid defense but was missing the gun powder in the offense." 
  • MARCA said, "Again and again Germany. Götze takes over the role of Iniesta."

  • The BBC wrote, "Germany once again rules the football world."
  • BLESK said, "Mario is a God! The ruffled Götze with the face of a boy, the 22-year-old ace from Bayern Munich delivers the key moment in Rio."
