Yokohama Stadium, Yokohama, Japan
Referee: Pierluigi Collina (ITA)
Cafu raises the trophy aloft: an outstanding World Cup has ended with Brazil as outstanding winners
And now Brazil step forward to receive the trophy and their winners' medals
Coach Voeller has a word with FIFA's Sepp Blatter: Voeller can be very proud of what he has achieved against the odds and expectations
The devastated German players pick up their losers' medals... keeper Kahn is looking particularly distraught
Which duly sounds - Brazil lift the World Cup, and Ronaldo is their hero. An absorbing, intriguing final in which Germany played their full part - but it's glory for Scolari and his players
A handful of seconds remain, and Brazil are just passing their way to the final whistle
Ziege shoots after Roque Junior is unable to clear... Marcos saves
Denilson crosses, Juninho's the target - and isn't found
Frings then foils Juninho as he tries to dart through: three minutes of added time to play...
Denilson is straight into showbiz mode - he makes a great run down the left which is eventually stopped by Ramelow
Denilson will be coming on for Brazil shortly... and two-goal hero Ronaldo is the player who makes way. Quite rightly, he gets a thunderous ovation
The free-kick comes to nothing, but now it's just a case of counting down the seconds for Brazil... their fans have started to party already
Roberto Carlos takes on Asamoah again... Juninho takes over and is fouled by Hamann midway inside the Germany half
The ball's too far ahead of him, and Kahn gathers that... Ziege comes forward and looks for Asamoah. Roberto Carlos is there with a fine challenge
The Germans have played well today - but here comes Juninho, looking for Rivaldo once more...
Schneider floats a free-kick towards Metzelder... Marcos leaves it, but the Germany defender can't get the crucial touch
Change for Brazil now: here comes Juninho, and Ronaldinho makes way
Christian Ziege is on for Bode - it's Germany's final throw of the dice
Asamoah crosses: Bierhoff gets the ball and raps in a shot. Marcos makes a superb low save... great stop. Hamann follows up with a shot from outside the area, which is wide
Linke shoots, Lucio charges it down and took a pretty forceful blow from that... he's dazed
Roberto Carlos loses out and Bode comes forward for Germany - they win yet another corner. Can they find a route back into the match?
Sublime finishing from, surely, the player of the tournament... he's got eight goals overall now. Dazzling stuff
Cafu feeds Ronaldo just inside the area and the finish is cool, calm and perfect. It's 2-0 Brazil - surely they are world champions now!
Asamoah's into the action quickly, challenging Roberto Carlos down the left... but here come Brazil again
...until Bierhoff is penalised for a foul, and Brazil grab the chance to move forward. Jeremies goes off and Gerald Asamoah comes on in another Germany switch
Hamann tries a long-range free-kick: Brazil block, but Germany are turning up the pressure now...
Neuville plays it in and Roque Junior heads it clear for Brazil
Frings hits a shot and is rewarded with a corner as the ball deflects away
Jeremies looks for the substitute, who then looks to Neuville...
Change for Germany: Klose is off and Oliver Bierhoff comes on as boss Voeller tries to refresh his side
Great run by Lucio - he motors into the area and crosses, but it eludes the waiting Ronaldo
That comes to nothing: a free-kick is given for a foul as Brazil defend the set piece
Marcos flips it away, and Germany keep the pressure up to win another corner
Frings looks for Bode: Germany come forward again with Jeremies and his shot deflects wide for a corner
Brazil clear, and stand a little over 20 minutes from football's ultimate glory
The Germans have a corner, which is played deep into the area
Perhaps Kahn should have held the first shot - but whatever, it's harsh on Germany, who have played well so far
Straight to the other end - Rivaldo hits a vicious shot which Kahn can't hold and Ronaldo is in the right place to tap home the World Cup final's opening goal!
...but Jeremies is back - then Germany play the ball into the area and Brazil get it clear
Jeremies, at least, is back on his feet - he limps to the side of the pitch for further treatment
Sebastian Kehl is being readied to come into the fray for Voeller's team...
He's being treated, but this seems very worrying for Germany... he may well not be able to continue
Jeremies and Cafu crunch into a challenge: the German player has come off much worse and looks to be in some trouble
Forward come Germany: Neuville can't quite get to the ball as it's threaded into the penalty area
Ramelow at the back for Germany: he challenges Rivaldo superbly as the Brazil star tries to take the ball around him
Ronaldinho finds Cafu, wide on the right: it's a great pass. The cross, however, doesn't match, being too far ahead of Brazil's forwards
Ronaldo hits it - into the wall. Roque Junior is penalised for a foul on Ramelow as Brazil try to pick up the pieces
It's fairly central, some 25 yards out...
From it, Hamann is penalised for handball - free-kick to Brazil in a very dangerous position
Cafu is beaten to the ball by Jeremies: throw to Brazil near the Germany area
...then Hamann shoots from outside the area. It's over the crossbar
Metzelder is there as Ronaldo chases a flick forward by Rivaldo... Frings comes forward and crosses too high
...and Frings hits a shot which is wild, high and wide. More good intent from Germany though
Klose breaks well - Frings is the target of his square ball across the face of the area...
And Klose comes away for Germany... then hits a shot which is woefully scuffed and poses no threat whatsoever
Rivaldo finds Ronaldo with a superb pass: Ramelow blocks his attempted shot
...which produces a scramble but, ultimately, a free-kick for Germany after a foul on Kahn
...but here's Ronaldo, wide on the right. It's a corner for Brazil
Germany starting this half with the same purpose and verve that they did the first
Schneider takes, looking for Metzelder, who is crowded out
Both sides have hit the woodwork now: Frings comes forward again and wins a corner
He instead hammers a fantastic shot goalwards from a long way out - and it hits the post after a great touch by keeper Marcos
Free-kick to Germany: Neuville looking to play this one into the area...
At the other end, Ronaldinho moves forward, but once more Germany are so quick to close their opponents down
A great chance for Germany - their best of the match so far
It falls for Jeremies, unmarked. He heads goalwards and it's blocked...
Hamann and Neuville clear, and the final ball forward takes a deflection and runs out for a corner...
The second half is under way... Brazil looking to move forward straight away
It's the final action of the first half - Collina blows the whistle to end an absorbing first 45 minutes. Goalless - but only just
Kahn saves well - real pressure from Brazil as the first half comes to a close
Jeremies, the most piratical-looking player in the final - clears, but Ronaldo is there inside the area...
Lucio now - Brazil buoyed by that. Kleberson once more... he looks for Lucio, who is crowded out. Suddenly Brazil have upped the tempo, and they win a corner
It's an absolutely superb strike, arcing over Kahn - and crashing back off the crossbar
Here's Rivaldo, trying to make something happen - Kleberson hits it from the edge of the area...
Schneider is fouled: Jeremies lifts the set-piece towards Bode, but he's outjumped
Another very presentable chance for Brazil... will they live to regret those misses?
Suddenly, Kleberson breaks through... he hits the shot from the edge of the area but drags it wide of Kahn's far post
The ball breaks to Jeremies and his fantastic beard, but he lifts the shot over the bar
Germany's increasing confidence is shown in some neat, tidy passing. They're keeping possession well and then Frings crosses towards Bode...
...and Brazil clear. Five minutes to the end of what has been an interesting, if so far goalless, final
Hamann makes an interception as Ronaldo and Rivaldo look to link... Germany come to the other end and win themselves a free-kick
Frings comes forward: Roberto Carlos challenges him and wins the ball well
Linke's penalised for a foul... free-kick to the Brazilians
Schneider comes back at his marker Gilberto Silva and wins his side another corner on the left...
Ramelow on the break for Germany... he hits a shot, which Brazil block
...and Linke is there with another impeccably-timed challenge
Ten minutes left until the break, and it's Germany's final so far... but here comes Rivaldo. He looks for Ronaldo...
Lucio wins the ball back - and then sees it goes out of play on the right
Silva finds Cafu wide on the right - a good challenge by Bode stops that move
Ronaldinho fouled on halfway - Brazil have a free-kick
Edmilson and Ronaldinho link: Rivaldo is the target for the final ball, which doesn't find him
Ronaldinho controls the ball superbly and then plays it towards Kleberson... who can't bring it under control
Schneider takes, Marcos punches and Brazil clear. Frings looks to get things going, but is caught offside
And Germany go straight to the other end and win themselves another corner
Ronaldinho flicks towards Ronaldo - Kahn, so outstanding during this tournament, is there to gather safely
Again, crisp passing opened the way for Germany and coach Voeller will surely be delighted with what his team have achieved so far
Neuville and Schneider find Bode in a dangerous position - but his control lets him down as he looks set to break into the penalty area
Roberto Carlos then makes a good challenge as Frings attempts to exploit more good interpassing
Kleberson plays it wide to Roberto Carlos, who drives the ball into the area. It's blocked and then Cafu is unable to keep the ball in play
Edmilson heads clear - this is a great opening spell for Germany but can they translate it into a goal?
...but again the Germans snap back at Brazil and win another corner. Excellent play once more...
Hamann chases a Frings pass down the right: the cross is towards Klose and is cleared
Then Neuville tumbles under challenge from Lucio - he's soon back on his feet
Schneider commits a foul as he goes for a loose ball inside the Brazil half - that's another free-kick
Lucio comes storming forward for Brazil - his attempted one-two with Ronaldo just fails and Germany can deal with that situation
Linke then crosses towards Klose and the ball is headed away: Roberto Carlos finally hammers it further clear
Linke for Germany, whose passing has been measured and calm thus far
The best chance of the game so far - but, had Ronaldo made it count, a Brazil lead would have been very much against the run of play
...he tries to slip the shot wide of Kahn, but mishits it glaringly and that's a very rare lapse in what has been an outstanding tournament for him
Brazil on halfway: Ronaldinho slips the ball into the area for Ronaldo, who is onside and in the clear...
It's badly-delivered and dealt with easily... Scolari looking animated on the touchline, as well he might
...Ronaldinho is crowded out on the edge of the box and then Cafu fouls Neuville following another slick Germany move
Roberto Carlos charges it down - can Brazil get going here? Just over 15 minutes gone, and they haven't sparked into life...
Then Roberto Carlos concedes a free-kick on the right - Germany starting much the stronger here
He moves into the middle as Schneider crosses - Edmilson makes a fine challenge to concede a corner
A Neuville foul gives Brazil a free-kick inside their own half... Kleberson breaks forward but Germany clear and here they come again with Klose
Forward comes Bode... the pass towards him is a little too strong and it's a goal-kick to Brazil
...who mishits his shot from outside the area and sees it easily blocked
Neuville is foiled by Edmilson as he tries to get a cross in. Frings finds Schneider, who tees up Hamann...
As if to prove the point, Rivaldo chases - rather forlornly - an overhit pass forward
Brazil yet to really find their flowing passing: the Germans are doing a good job of closing the ball down and denying space
...but ref Collina halts play for a foul as the corner comes in. More encouraging moments for Germany in the build-up, however
Brazil knock the free-kick long: Germany deal with it and break. Schneider crosses dangerously from the right and Brazil scramble it away for a corner. A fine move from Voeller's side
Edmilson still looking a little dazed... but he's back on his feet
Klose is booked for a challenge on Edmilson, who has gone to ground clutching his face... two early bookings in this final
...but then they let Kleberson in with some careless passing. He shoots low, and Kahn gathers
Germany keep the pressure up and win a throw - they'll be encouraged by the way they've started the game
Schneider squares it instead - Neuville shoots and it's blocked
Ramelow plays it long for Klose, who is trying to move down the right. Edmilson is ruled to have fouled him and Germany can swing this free-kick into the area...
...and then Linke - a good challenge by him. Roque Junior clatters in and is booked
Roberto Carlos links with Cafu... now Ronaldo on halfway... and then Roberto Carlos again
Schneider flicks, Rivaldo steps in - the Germans clear his pass forward
And as Germany venture forward, Klose wins a throw: Bode plays it across and Silva is there to clear
Forward comes Kleberson on the right - he swings in a cross and Kahn is in the right place to claim that one
Kahn takes the goal-kick long... Brazil come forward, but Klose, near half-way, can let that one run out for a throw
It's aimed towards Gilberto Silva, who can't get a proper touch to the ball and sees it skim out of play
Germany try to flick the ball on, but Ronaldinho steps in and embarks on a good run - Linke is forced to concede a corner
And here we go - Brazil kick off and play the ball forward immediately... it goes behind for a goal-kick to the Germans
Any minute now, the World Cup final will be under way...
Now Brazil... fine tune, this one
And here come the national anthems... Germany first
Kick-off just five minutes away... lots of yellow and green in the stands. It's just like the Division One play-off final at Cardiff
