STORYLINE:

Germany and Argentina fans started to arrive at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday for the World Cup final.

It was a colourful scene outside the stadium with fans of both countries sporting their national colours in abundance.

Tens of thousands of fans were expected to flock to Rio for the final, and millions of Brazilians across South America's biggest country have one more game to celebrate their month-long football celebration.

With Argentina right next door to Brazil, it was no surprise that Rio de Janeiro was completely awash in the white and sky-blue jerseys of the Argentinean team, with upward of 70,000 Argentineans flooding into the seaside city and making themselves at home.

German fans were filtering in, too, hoping for a fourth World Cup title.
