Germany's players lift the World Cup trophy as they celebrate their 2014 World Cup final win against Argentina at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro July 13, 2014.

Germany emerged as the World Cup champion with a 1-0 win over Argentina on 13 July at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

In the 113th minute, Mario Goetze scored the winning goal and ended the country's 24-year wait for another World Cup title.

"It's an unbelievable feeling. I don't know how to describe it. You just shoot that goal in, you don't really know what's happening," Goetze said. "It'll be a party with the whole team and the country. It's a dream come true to win the World Cup, especially in Brazil."

Manuel Neuer, who received the Golden Glove as the tournament's best goalkeeper said: "It's incredible. The team did it beautifully. At some point we'll stop celebrating but we'll still wake up with a smile."

However, Twitter was abuzz with World War II and Nazi comments, following Germany's victory over Argentina.

While, some users felt the crude jokes offensive and tasteless.
