Though Argentina played well, German's were clearly the deserved Team to lift the Cup. They played solid, fluid and good soccer through out the tournament. It is unlikely that anyone in the world except Argentinians will be upset with this result. Argentina should not be so upset though. They played very well in the tournament and even in the final with their performance, they should hold their heads high.
Overall the Cup was a success for FIFA and Brazil as the host did step up and handled the responsibility very well.
FIFA gets one more solid 'footage' in its cherished history books of global joy.
