The final act of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil has been set and the Maracana is the stage. The Rio de Janeiro stadium will become the second stadium to host two World Cup Finals after hosting the 1950 World Cup Final.  And for the third time in World Cup history, Germany and Argentina will face off in the sporting world’s biggest stage.

For Die Mannschaft, coming fresh off their dominating 7-1 victory over the hosts Brazil in the semifinal, they hold the most consistent and potent attack this summer, scoring in every match. Attacking midfielder/forward Thomas Müller has been the centerpiece of Germany’s play, with five goals and three assists.

La Albiceleste are led by their talisman Lionel Messi. The little Barcelona playmaker is a huge reason why the South American side are in the final with four goals and an assist.  These stats may not look at stellar as Müller’s stat sheet but his awareness, leadership and talent on the pitch has made him the most feared man in Brazil.

Both nations have kits supplied from the biggest footballing company on the planet, adidas. One of the official sponsors of the World Cup, adidas has supplied kits for three of the last six World Cup champions, including Germany’s triumph in Italy back in 1990 as West Germany, just before the nation was reunified.  The 1990 World Cup Final was the last time adidas was the jersey sponsor for both finalists.
GERMANY4
Three-time World Cup champion Germany has a bold pair of kits that have gone for a more modern and youthful Germany to describe their theme for Brazil. Their primary kit expresses this major change, as their traditional black shorts were replaced with white for a monochromatic look. The chevron that appears across the chest has three shades of red, representing the nation’s energy that flows from the team and new generation of players, and the graphic lines within are for the diversity and backgrounds of the players. The design is accentuated with a black trim above and gold trim below. A high-quality black and silver version of Die Mannschaft’s badge is placed at the heart of the jersey, invoking pride and the prestige of the three previous conquests in the World Cup. Both shirts have an arching band in the national colors beneath the collar in the back neck area, with “Die Nationalmannschaft,” “Our National Team” printed over the stripe.

The Germans’ away kit has a clean look: a black and red hooped jersey with silver details. There are sublimated mini-hoops within the red sections. Stylish with features like the two-button band collar and monochrome silver high-quality badge, and complete with black shorts and socks with red and silver trim, Germany has one of the best looking pair of kits in the competition.
ARGENTINA2
For Argentina, their home jersey is a traditional symbol of national pride. Winning the World Cup in 1978 and 1986, the Albiceleste are known for their white and sky blue stripes on their uniforms. The 2014 edition of the Argentine home strip has a modern take on the stripes, and like their German counterparts, the usual black shorts gave way to white shorts, for a uniformed look. The jersey has a classic black v-neck collar with matching adidas shoulder stripes and sleeve cuffs. The stripes have two tones of sky blue, as smaller, detailed diagonal stripes give the design a gradient effect, and becomes lighter as they descend down to the hem. A specially made badge is on the chest, across from adidas’ logo. Gold trim appears on each side and on the arching band on the back, under the collar. A tag with Argentina’s FA appears over the band. White socks with a both sky blues in a band complete the look.

The blue away kit comes monochrome as well, with navy and blue appearing on the shirt. The jersey retains the v-neck collar and gold trim from the home kit, but the main design feature is the horizontal stripes, some having diagonal tonal striping for a detailed look. The badge has a golden appearance as well.
