The Germans roared their ways into the World Cup finals, while the Argentinian team barely squeaked in.

The World Cup final is now set, as Argentina will be battling Germany on Sunday, July 13th.

Germany earned their spot in the finals by crushing Brazil 7-1, while Argentina got past the Netherlands in a tightly contested battle that eventually was decided in a shootout.

Despite Argentina having superior odds to win the tournament prior to the semi-finals taking place, Germany are now the favourites to win the final game thanks to their thrashing of Brazil. Argentina has had issues with each and every opponent that they have faced in this tournament, while Germany is coming off of a one-sided clubbing of the host nation.
