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

Argentina are less deadly than Germany as they mainly rely on Lionel Messi's exploits and marauding runs, which yielded two goals from inside the area and two from outside.

The World Player of the Year was also instrumental in setting up Angel Di Maria for another goal from inside the area in the 1-0 victory over Switzerland in the last 16 while Gonzalo Higuain also found the net in the quarter-final clash against Belgium with a first-timer from 14 yards out.

Argentina scored only two goals from inside the six-yard box, with Bosnia's Sead Kolasinac netting an own goal and Marcos Rojo kneeing in a corner from close range in a 3-2 victory over Nigeria in the group stage.
