So 30 minutes more. The last time Germany went to extra-time in a World Cup final was 1966 at Wembley.
At least we have goalline technology now.
Match stats for the 90 mins.
Shots -Germany 8 Argentina 5
Shots on goal - Germany 5 Argentina 1
First half of extra-time underway.
André Schürrle with a shot inside the box but straight at Romero. Wow. That could have been the lead right there. He fell over, got back on his feet to receive the ball and fire in the shot, just couldn't get it past Romero.
Germany back on attack now.
Schweinsteiger with cross but Argentina clear then break.
Sergio Agüero with a shot across the face of goal. No one with him though and Germany clear. Fast-paced start to extra-time.
Both teams out to win the game. Great to see.
Kroos with a searching low pass into the box but can't find a teammate. Argentina clear.
Gotze tries to chase down a ball but it goes over the touchline.
Rodrigo Palacio with a chance inside the box but can't get a clear shot away. From his chest the ball was bouncing and he tried to chip Neuer but couldn't find the back of the net. Gaps opening up in both sides now.
You'd think Germany have the slight edge since they played their semifinal a day earlier, went easy in the second half against Brazil while Argentina went through 120 minutes against the
Germany enjoying decent territory but Argentina continue to hold strong at the back. Would be an amazing showing to go through 450 minutes in second stage of tournament without giving up a goal.
Bastian Schweinsteiger is down. But after a little break he's back up.
Javier Mascherano now goes down after clashing ith Toni Kroos in midair.
Couple of minutes left in first half of extra time.
Lahm down the righthand side tries to find Kroos on edge of box but Argentina clear.
Argentina break but Germany get freekick as Palacio fouls Lahm. And that is halftime of extra time.
Down the lefthand touch, Schürrle with the cross. Gotze takes it off his chest and puts it past Romero with his left foot. What a cracking goal.
The first time Argentina have been behind at this World Cup. First goal conceded in the second stage of the tournament.
Just five minutes left now. Germany about to claim a fourth World Cup title.
That goal is worth winning a World Cup. Off his chest and left foot volley.
Into the final few minutes now.
Thomas Mueller breaks into the box but can't get in a decent shot.
Messi fouled. Argentina get a freekick near the edge of the box.
Messi lines up the freekick. This to send it into penalties....
It's about 10m from edge of box on the righthand side.
And it's well over the crossbar. That will be the game.
GERMANY WIN THE WORLD CUP
So that's the end of our coverage. Thanks for joining me during the morning. Well done to Germany. Deserved winners. Now we wait four years. Hopefully we can cheer on the All Whites then.
