    World Cup final match-winner Mario Goetze said he felt “unbelievable” after scoring the extra-time goal that gave Germany a 1-0 win over Argentina on Sunday. (Photos: 24-year wait ends in extra-time)

    “It’s an unbelievable feeling,” said the Bayern Munich forward after etching his name into World Cup legend at the iconic Maracana. (Photos: Germany players express love after title win)

    “I don’t know how to describe it. You just score that goal and you don’t really know what’s happening after that.”

    “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.” (Also Read: We are going to celebrate for five weeks, says Neuer)

    After replacing Miroslav Klose in the 88th minute, Goetze’s historic moment arrived seven minutes from the end of extra time when he chested down a cross from Andre Schuerrle and lashed a volley past Sergio Romero.

    It was a cathartic moment for the 22-year-old, who left his boyhood club Borussia Dortmund for Bayern last year in a 37 million euros ($50.3 million) transfer that rocked German football. (Must Read: Schweinsteiger pays tribute to German fans)

    Goetze struggled to hold down a first-team place in his maiden campaign at Bayern and he admitted that he had endured a testing 12 months.

    “It hasn’t been a simple year for me or a simple tournament. I owe a lot to my family and my girlfriend (model Ann Kathrin Brommel), who always believed in me,” he said.

    “It’s not been simple, but I am simply happy to be here. I kept on training and working hard, and we deserved this trophy.
