2014 Fifa World Cup final: Rio ready for Germany v Argentina
Germany and Argentina will contest the 2014 FIFA World Cup final tonight, in front of an expected television audience of more than a billion.
Germany would be the first European team to win the tournament in South America, if they take the title for the first time since 1990.
If Argentina triumph, it would end a 28-year wait for World Cup glory since they beat West Germany in 1986.
The game, which kicks-off at Rio's Mara-cana, is a 79,000 sellout.
Germany, seeking a fourth World Cup, crushed hosts Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals, while two-time winners Argentina beat Netherlands 4-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw.
