The World Cup final between Germany and Argentina is goalless at half-time despite good chances at both ends.

Gonzalo Higuain pounced on a terrible header from Toni Kroos towards his own goal in the 21st minute, only to drag his shot well wide when one-on-one with Manuel Neuer.

Higuain then had a goal disallowed for offside before Jerome Boateng had to make a saving tackle almost on the goalline after Lionel Messi went on a great run and poked the ball beyond Neuer.

For Germany, Benedikt Hoewedes headed a corner against the post in first half injury-time. Andre Schuerrle had earlier replaced Christoph Kramer, who failed to recover from an earlier challenge by Ezequiel Garay.
