Merkel: Germany will win World Cup

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday predicted her country’s soccer team would beat Argentina on Sunday to win the 2014 World Cup.

“It certainly won’t be easy tomorrow; after the 7-1 everybody thinks ‘It’s almost done’ – that’s why we all need to cross our fingers again,” she told a local TV station.
