One year on: Germany crowned in Rio

Remarkable as it might seem, 365 days have now passed since Germany became World champions for a fourth time, edging Argentina 1-0 in a tense, enthralling Final.

Mario Gotze's wonderful winning goal applied a fittingly fantastic seal to Joachim Low's side's near-perfect campaign, and rounded off an unforgettable tournament.

Now, a year on, Germany is reliving their crowning moment, with the DFB and others sharing their Maracana memories on social media.

And if you're enjoying the nostalgia, why not take a look at some of our videos centring on Brazil 2014's climax, as Low, Toni Kroos and Philipp Lahm reflect on their success, while Lionel Messi and Arjen Robben look over key moments. You can also check out the match highlights and hear from one of Germany's 1974 world champions on the significance of the win.
