#9 Mario Gotze’s goal in the World Cup final against Argentina
Joachim Low substituted 36-year-old Miroslav Klose with Mario Gotze in the 88th minute and said: "Show the world you are better than Messi and can decide the World Cup." Mario Gotze went on and did just that.
The “German Messi” scored the only goal of the match in the 113th minute, to break Messi’s and Argentina’s hearts and give this talented German side their first major international trophy after 1996.
Scoring the only and winning goal in the second half of a World Cup final definitely catapulted Gotze’s goal to this list and Joachim Low’s Germany side could finally win a major international trophy after years of missing out on the top prize by narrow margins.
