The 2014 World Cup, regrettably, reached its climax on Sunday as Germany became the first European country to win the competition on South American soil with a 1-0 victory over Argentina after extra time.

Mario Gotze's instinctive volley secured a fourth World Cup triumph for Die Mannschaft to draw level with Italy and move to within just one tournament victory of five-times winners and hosts of this year's competition, Brazil.

A Seleção were eviscerated by a rampant German side in the semi-finals, with Joachim Löw's side running out 7-1 winners before Phil Scolari's side lost the third-place playoff 3-0 to Holland as the host country crumbled under the pressure.

It represented the first time Germany have won the competition since 1990, when they also beat the Argentines 1-0 thanks to a late penalty from Andreas Brehme, with Lionel Messi failing to emulate the efforts of Diego Maradona and the World-cup winning Argentinian side of 1986.

Fans were treated to a deluge of goals, spirited underdog displays and scintillating football in a month-long festival of football.

But how are you coping with the loss of football on your television sets each evening?
