Two goals from Ronaldo gave the South American's the victory, completing a remarkable turnaround from the final in france four years ago when a below par Ronaldo peresonified a poor Brazilian side who lost to France 3-0.

Hamann was asked to boss the midfield for the Germans, but was at fault for Brazil's first goal as he lost possession to Rivaldo.

Germany had been lamented for a defensive mentality throughout the tournament but surprised everybody with a more positive game - although the destination of the Jules Rimet trophy was never in doubt.
