  1. Singapore rejigs anti-gambling ad after Germany’s World Cup Win“, by Chun Han Wong (Wall Street Journal). Watch the original advert on YouTube. Clever parry by Singapore’s NCPG — inspiring other wittiness in the blogosphere.
  2. Germany beat Argentina to win World Cup final with late Mario Götze goal“, by Daniel Taylor (The Guardian).
  3. Joachim Löw: I told Mario Götze to ‘show you are better than Messi’“, by Dominic Fifield (The Guardian). Wonderfully apt for this article’s title is captain Phillip Lahm’s post-match remark:

We stepped up time and again in the tournament, did not let ourselves get distracted by any disruption, but just went our way. And at the end you stand there as world champions, an unbelievable feeling.
