Manchester United’s Anders Lindegaard: It was ‘written in the stars’ for Germany

19 Old Trafford

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard congratulates Germany for winning what he believes was the best ever World Cup.

Germany have been the most consistent international team of this century and finally they achieved success.

On Sunday, the European giants got the better of Argentina in the final of the 2014 World Cup at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.

The match finished goalless after 90 minutes and looked to be heading into penalties when Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze popped up to turn in Chelsea forward Andre Schurrle’s cross from close range in the 113th minute.

The 1-0 victory saw Die Mannschaft win the World Cup for the fourth time in their history and become the first European team to do so in South America.

Joachim Low’s side have been widely acknowledged as the best team in the tournament, and Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard agrees, making his opinion known on social networking site Twitter.

Interestingly, the 30-year-old Denmark international also believes that World Cup in Brazil was the best ever. Once again, that is something on which many football followers would agree.

The 2014 World Cup was truly amazing and many of the results were unexpected. The way Spain capitulated against the Netherlands, Brazil collapsed against Germany and Costa Rica stunned the footballing world by progressing to the quarter-finals are some of the examples that have made the tournament in Brazil a memorable one.
