Argentina returns to final 24 years later and repeat the of 1990
Germany-Argentina, this will be the final of the World Cup in Brazil 2014. The Germans return to the World Cup final after 12 years after brushing her in the 2006 and the 2010. Meanwhile, the Argentines will play a fair World title again 24 years after his last final and he will precisely do it against the rival that saved him from winning his third star in that already distant 1990. That day, Germans, still though for a short time Federal Republic of Germany, they won with a much-discussed penalty.
In that appointment from the last century, the argentines, presented themselves in Italy as world champions after having conquered the World Cup 1986 hand in hand with a spectacular Maradona. Still your way to the end of 1990 had nothing to do. In a World Cup 24 teams at that time, in which the first two and the best third parties passed, the argentines, managed to qualify third in their group just behind Cameroon and Romania, two selections theoretically inferior to the albiceleste. Then came the victory against Brazil by one nil, and the pass on penalties against the former Yugoslavia and Italy. Finally he ran into the Germans who were experiencing profound political changes in their country with the still recent fall of the Berlin Wall..
The Germans for their part dominated their group and passed as the first. Then they beat the Netherlands by two goals to one, to the extinct Czechoslovakia by one to nil to later overcome the semifinals on penalties against England. The Argentines in that appointment had a mythical ten as was Diego Armando Maradona. twenty four years later, a Leo Messi far from his best moment leads Argentina from 2014. The Germans had an excellent team although far from the talented team of 2014.
In that final held on 8 July 1990 (talisman date for germans) in Rome, the Germans prevailed by a goal to nil although it was not without controversy. In a tense and disputed game, the Germans managed to win after a disputed penalty that Andreas Brehme was going to score in the minute 85, almost at the end of the games. Brazil 2014 will reunite them. the germans carry 24 years without winning the title while the Argentines 28. One thing is clear, whatever happens, one of them will add a new star to his chest.
