Monday 14 July 2014

Germany manager Joachim Low has revealed that his words inspired Mario Gotze to score the goal which won his side the World Cup, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

After a fascinating but tense 90 minutes where neither side was able to break the deadlock, the final moved into extra time. Chances were then missed at either end, before Andre Schurrle’s lifted pass found Gotze, who controlled the ball and fired it into the far corner past Sergio Romero to give Germany their fourth world crown.


Gotze came on as a substitute for striker Miroslav Klose in the late stages of normal time, and winning boss Low has revealed that he told Gotze to ‘show that he is better than (Lionel) Messi’.


“I said to him, 'show to the world you are better than Messi. I had a good feeling that he can play in any position,” said Low


The Bayern Munich star added: “It’s an unbelievable feeling. I didn’t know what was happening. It’s indescribable. A dream became a reality. It is absolutely sensational.”
