Genius! Mario Götze pays tribute to Lionel Messi with post WC final picture on Instagram

It will likely go down in football folklore that just before entering the Maracana in the World Cup final as a substitute, Jogi Low gave Mario Götze specific instructions:

“I said to Götze: ‘OK, show the world you are better than Messi and can decide the World Cup.”

In the aftermath of the World Cup final a number of German players have paid homage to Lionel Messi.

Before leaving Brazil, Götze posted an Instagram picture taken after the World Cup final alongside the Argentine forward.

It features Götze with his World Cup winners medal and Messi, with a simple one word tag line:

“Genius”.
