Germany fans 'confident' ahead of World Cup final14/07/2014 from：SNTV
Germany fans party on the beach in Rio de Janeiro before the World Cup final against Argentina.
German fans are confident in Rio and why not, they destroyed the hosts 7-1 in their last match. Now they expect to beat Argentina in the World Cup final.
SOUNDBITE: (German) Andre Schwenk, Germany fan (++ROUGH TRANSLATION++)
"I'm here in Rio, heading to Maracana direct from Copacabana to have the greatest time of my life. I am here with my brother and two friends and it is amazing, we have been in Fortaleza before this. Today we're going to make history again, and a miracle, we're going to get the fourth star, I am very confident."
SOUNDBITE: (German) Klaus Aderhold, Germany fan (++ROUGH TRANSLATION++)
"We are here to celebrate the final match because we expect Germany to win the World Cup today. There are a lot of people here from Argentina because it's a neighbouring country and they don't have so far to come, but I think today Germany will win."
SOUNDBITE: (German) Barbara Khayat, Germany fan (++ROUGH TRANSLATION++)
"I am so proud to be here and I think that it's such an amazing atmosphere and we hope, and I think we will win, the Argentinians are such nice people and friendly, and the better team will win."
Germany are the favourites but they will also be wary of how unpredictable this tournament has been and that Argentina have arguably the best player in the World.
Confidence can fast turn into heartache, Brazil know all about that.
