Still, a fantastic advert for German football, and just reward for all the work that's gone into the game over there since the dark days of Euro 2000.
Not sure how dark those days were as Germany appeared in the 2002 World Cup final which to me sounds like a quick recovery.

I'm re-watching the final now and it's hilarious how Dante is shaking his head after giving away the penalty after having kicked Reus in the stomach. If that wasn't a penalty, then nothing is.

Overall, an excellent final. Clearly the two best teams were there.

Oh, and I will cherish Bayern's two demolitions of Barcelona for years to come.
