Ahram Online examines the goal-scoring prowess of Germany ahead of their 2014 World Cup final against Argentina on Sunday

Germany look superior in terms of cutting edge, jinking into the opposing area far too easily to slice open even the toughest of backlines.

They hardly resorted to long-range efforts, with their abundance of attacking talents carving out chances at will, scoring seven goals from the six-yard box, another seven from the 18-yard area and one from the spot.  

They only scored twice from the edge of the area, thanks to precise shots from Thomas Mueller and Toni Kroos against Ghana and Brazil respectively.
