The goal in images

4:59 PMa year ago


The runner-up team started well in the first half, but very quickly lost possession of the ball and the match became complicated, and when they wanted to react, they were already losing in the second half and the lack of luck and depth at times, cost them the tournament.

Fábio Vieira was the player of the tournament, an award that shows the good tournament the team had, but there is only one champion and they were unlucky. 

4:56 PMa year ago

The champion

Germany had a good first half, the beginning of the second half was overwhelming and when they scored the goal, their defensive order was enough to win the crown.

They had opportunities to increase the score during the second half, but the bad luck of their players and the good performance of the rival goalkeeper prevented the final from having more goals.

The German team was justly crowned champion.
