In a very tough battle that remained scoreless in regulation time, Germany was able to pull out a victory against Argentina in the World Cup Final with a score of 1-0.

Both sides played tough and had many good shots, but both defenses would not let up.

Not until the 113th minute would Germany score. Schweinsteiger centered the ball to Mario Gotze who would then drill the ball into the goal with his left. The 22-year-old did not even start for Germany’s last three games.

For Argentina, it was too little, too late. The last play of the game was a free kick from Lionel Messi which sailed over the crossbar in the 123rd minute.

Colombia’s James Rodriguez was rewarded the Golden Boot as he scored 6 times throughout the World Cup.

The host for the next World Cup in 2018 will be Russia.

Miami Dolphins’ defensive end Dion Jordan will get a late start to the 2014 NFL season. Jordan was expected to have a breakout season, but that will not begin until the fifth game.

The Dolphins announced Thursday that the 3rd pick in the 2013 NFL Draft will be suspended four games for disobeying the league’s performance enhancing drug policy. “During the suspension, I will stay in top shape and be ready to contribute upon my return”, Jordan stated.

The Dolphins were expecting Jordan to have a large contribution this year. The Miami Herald reported in May that Jordan had bulked up to 265 pounds this off-season. Fans were excited to see Jordan breakout this year when he was paired with defensive end Cameron Wake.

Jordan will be allowed to participate in Dolphins’ training camp , but he will be barred from the team’s facility once the preseason ends. He will be eligible to return to the Dolphins’ active roster on September 29th.

It was an absolute nightmare for Brazil on Tuesday. In one of the most historic and shocking World Cup matches, Germany defeats Brazil 7-1.

Even without Thiago Silva, Brazil was confident and ready to perform against Germany, but they were completely unaware of the embarrassment that was going to take place.

Right off the bat, the game is fast paced and evenly matched. That quickly changes after Thomas Müller’s goal in the 11th minute. After that, Brazil’s defense is completely disorganized and everything goes downhill from there. From the 23rd to the 29th minute, Germany would score 4 more goals. Two of those goals came from Toni Kroos.

The crowd was in complete shock and could only hope that this nightmare would end and Brazil could come back in the second half. Sadly, that would not happen.

André Schürrle would give Germany two more goals in the second half making the score 7-0. In the 90th minute Brazil’s Oscar would finally give them their first and only goal. With the final score being 7-1, Germany advances to it’s eighth world cup final. Germany will play the winner of the Argentina-Netherlands semifinal.

Brazil has one more match to play and it will be on Saturday vs. the loser of Argentina-Netherlands.
