World Cup: Mats Hummels nails header off corner kick (GIF)

Germany and Portugal are currently playing in one of the most highly anticipated matches in the World Cup. The game is part of the Group G table, which has been given the moniker the “Group of Death”, and has huge consequences for the outcome of the group.

The Germans are quickly proving why they are such a feared team and one of the favorites to win the 2014 World Cup.

Already with a one goal lead over Portugal, the Germans have added yet another goal to increase their lead to 2-0 in the first half of the game.

After receiving a corner kick, Toni Kroos from the German side vollied an incredible corner kick directly into the center of the crowded box where Mats Hummels was able to elevate and nail a beautiful header into the back of the goal.

The Portugal goalie had no chance to save the wonderfully timed header from Hummels.

If you happened to miss the goal, or just want to watch it again, check out the GIF below (Courtesy of Zombie Prophet):
