Defeat In World Cup Sparked Protests And Riots In Argentina
Germany defeated Argentina 1-0 to become World Cup champion for the fourth time at Rio de Janeiro's famous Maracana Stadium. It did so courtesy of a winner deep into the extra-time from substitute Mario Gotze, who displayed a brilliant piece of skill to decide a contest of high quality. Mario scored a superb extra-time winner as Germany beat Argentina 1-0 to become first European team to win a World Cup held in South America. The 22-year-old took the ball down before volleying past Sergio Romero in Argentina's goal to spark delirium in the pro-German sections of crowd. The decisive moment of a World Cup brimming with wonderful goals came with penalties looming in front of 74,738 fans. Despite Argentina carving out several gilt-edged chances during the opening 90 minutes, Aljendro Saballa's side failed to get one shot on target with Gonzalo in the first half and Messi at the start of second dragging shots wide when well placed. On other side riots broke out in the capital of Argentina Buenes Ires, on the defeat of the country. Clashes are going on between the police and protesters, who are outraged on the defeat. Police used water cannon and tear gas. Forty police officials have been injured while 40 protesters have been arrested.
