It's the biggest football match on earth - the World Cup final
AFTER four weeks and 63 games of football, it all comes down to the biggest game – the World Cup final – tonight.
The 2014 tournament in Brazil has had its thrills, spills and upsets, but the Maracana stadium will tonight see two of the heavyweights of world football come up against each other.
Talking of upsets, Germany managed one of the biggest of all time when they crushed host nation Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals.
It will make them favourites for the win tonight, with Argentina having not been hugely impressive as they have made their way through the tournament.
They needed penalties to get past Holland in their semi-final after a dire 0-0 draw and they have yet to win any of their matches by a margin of more than one goal.
But they are here and will want to win their first World Cup since 1986 – will they turn on the style tonight?
Germany last made the final in 2002, where they lost to Brazil 2-0.
Tonight, they will aim to make history by becoming the first European team to win the title in South America.
Susann Idres, who lives in Bournemouth, is cheering on her native Germany.
She said: “It will be a completely different game (to the semi-final) on Sunday; I don’t think anything like that will happen again.
“The other team will have watched our game as well and will be aware of our strengths and weaknesses.
“I think it will be quite a tactical game.”
