Germany vs. Argentina, World Cup 2014 Final: Kickoff time and TV schedule

The World Cup comes to a close on Sunday as Germany faces Argentina at the Maracanã. Here's how you can watch the match.

SB Nation's 2014 World Cup Final Preview

After a month of competition across Brazil, the final match of the 2014 World Cup will be played at the Estadio Maracanã in Rio De Janeiro between Germany and Argentina.

The Germans are chasing their fourth World Cup title as they play in the final for the eight time in their history. It's their first appearance in the final since 2002 when they lost 2-0 against Brazil. Die Mannschaft are full of confidence after their astonishing 7-1 win over Brazil in the semifinal, and will be rested as well thanks to an extra day between their last match and Sunday.

Joachim Low's only injury concern is defender Mats Hummels who is dealing with tendonitis. It's not considered serious though, and Hummels is expected to start in the central defense.

This is the first time Argentina has made the final since a loss against West Germany in 1990. The last time they won was in 1986 when Diego Maradona led them to their second title. This time, they're led by Lionel Messi, the superbly talented striker who could step out of Maradona's shadow if he can lead the Albiceleste to a victory.

Angel Di Maria was able to return to light training during the week, but remains a major doubt for Sunday's match. Sergio Agüero is fully recovered and could start over Ezequiel Lavezzi. Fullback Marcos Rojo has a sore ankle that limited his training, but he's expected to be fit, and start.
