Joachim Low has revealed he told World Cup final match-winner Mario Gotze to "go out and show the world you are better than Lionel Messi".

The Bayern Munich playmaker came off the bench in extra-time at the Maracana to score a stunning solo goal in a dramatic 1-0 win against Argentina and secure his country a fourth World Cup.

The success means Die Mannschaft have become the first European team to win the trophy in South America.

Many column inches had been dedicated to Barcelona superstar and Argentina talisman Messi in the build-up to the Rio de Janeiro showdown, but Low said he always knew Gotze could produce a moment of magic.

Low told a press conference: "He is a miracle boy, a boy wonder - he can play in any position. I know he is always able to decide a match and he's scored a great winner.

"I said to him (at half-time in extra-time), 'okay show to the world that you are better than Messi and that you can decide the World Cup'.

"I had a good feeling about him."

Gotze arrived in Brazil having endured a difficult season with Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal winners Bayern Munich, so was thrilled to have stolen Messi's thunder.

The 22-year-old former Borussia Dortmund schemer said: "It is an unbelievable feeling, you just score that goal and you just don't really know what's happening.

"It's indescribable, you are having a party with the team, with the country, the dream has become a reality. It is absolutely sensational."
