The 2014 World Cup final was not a classic but it would be hard to argue that the Germans were not deserving winners.

Manuel Neuer's big hit on Gonzalo Higuain has been a major talking point with the non contact sports specialists calling for a red card and the hard as nails specialists calling for a badge of honour and I must agree it was a great hit and a fair one too he got the ball and done what I'd expect every great keeper to do knee's up and protect themselves when coming for a ball in the area!

I remember fondly a Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen during the 2012-13 season. Bayern Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer runs up towards the Leverkusen goal. He dribbles and sets up a cross that drifts into the area, and in the end the ball skips off the crossbar. Bayern loses the game.

In a quarterfinal match that often lacked urgency, German center back Mats Hummels can claim the decisive moment, overpowering French defender Patrice Evra for the 13th-minute winner.

The 6-foot-4 Hummels was helped along by a well-placed free kick from Toni Kroos, but it was the Borussia Dortmund man who had the finishing touch, literally strong-arming Evra to free himself 10 yards out.
