World Cup final goes to extra time
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – The World Cup final is going to extra time with Argentina and Germany even at 0-0 after 90 minutes today.
Both teams had their chances in regulation. Benedikt Hoewedes’ header hit the post in first-half stoppage time.
Lionel Messi missed an early second-half chance, breaking free on the left side and shooting toward the far post. The ball rolled wide of the Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and his net.
Messi again shot wide in the 75th.
Germany had a chance in the 71st, with the ball bouncing between players in front of goal, but Andre Schuerrle couldn’t get control.
The match was briefly delayed when a man ran onto the field in the 82nd minute. Security tackled him and took him off the field.
