One week ago today the 2014 World Cup in Brazil ended with Germany laying claim to the most prestigious trophy in all of Soccer. After 112 minutes of stalemate soccer, Germany and Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze scored the game and World Cup-winning goal in the most dramatic of fashions.
Not only did the 22 year old win the World Cup for his country, he did it as the only player in World Cup history to score in extra time after being subbed into the game.
Today, Gotze posted on Twitter a collage of pictures from the World Cup victory last week and included his thoughts on the goal once more:

Luckily for Gotze, his goal was far more than a dream. In reality, his goal brought Germany their first World Cup trophy in 24 years, thus fulfilling the dreams of thousands upon thousands of German fans back at home.
Gotze will have some time to relax and reflect on his game winning goal for several weeks as his club team, Bayern Munich, does not start their Bundesliga matches until the end of August. The club team will, however, be playing in multiple friendlies before then, but there is no word as to whether or not Gotze will make any appearances during those games.
Gotze is still very young, so he will likely have the chance to start or play for the German national team come the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
