The midfielder overcame a strong challenge from Sergio Aguero. Löw would not be so negative. The ultimate midfielder in the world’s best midfield, who not only collected his 107th cap but also something far more precious, something that has eluded him and Germany throughout his career: a winner’s medal. As he ran with the ball not just Mascherano but also Lucas Biglia launched at him, he was double-teamed and doubled up and Mascherano was fortunate to survive when he should have received a second caution.
Then Agüero, also on a yellow card, caught him in the face and with blood streaming from his head Schweinsteiger was taken to the touchline, berating the world. © 2020 Guardian News & Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

This may not be his last World Cup but it must have felt like his best opportunity.

This triumph owed much to Löw’s assured coaching, his preparation and bold tactics as well as the innate talent of his squad. Schweinsteiger made his international debut in June 2004 in a friendly against Hungary and earned 121 caps before his retirement from international football in 2016. But don't count on a move - 'Basti' has just seen off the talented Toni Kroos, who has joined Real Madrid, to remain Bayern's main man. But not beaten. At best Aguero accidentally scratched the midfielder just below the eye, but at worst he intentionally caaught him in the face with his left and right hands - replays and close ups were inconclusive on Aguero's intentions. The 2014 FIFA World Cup Final was a football match that took place on 13 July 2014 at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to determine the 2014 FIFA World Cup champion.
Schweinsteiger, sporting boots with the tag, The Chosen One', was simply superb, even when faced with rough treatment by Manchester City striker Aguero. He was part of the Germany squad for every major tournament from UEFA Euro 2004 until Euro 2016. The outstanding performers were the defenders – there were epic displays from Garay and Pablo Zabaleta and for Germany there was Jérôme Boateng and Philipp Lahm – as they thwarted attack after attack. Bloodied but unbowed, Schweinsteiger was magnificent at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium in the final, ensuring Germany controlled the midfield before Mario Goetze’s extra-time winning goal against Argentina.
With Toni Kroos struggling disappointingly it meant that even more of the responsibility fell on Schweinsteiger. Raphael Honigstein: Bastian Schweinsteiger was floored six times by the Argentinians in the World Cup final.
Germany were worthy champions and Schweinsteiger, who cradled that World Cup longer than anyone, the symbol of that victory and what the uncompromising lengths it had taken to earn it. Mon 14 Jul 2014 17.00 EDT
He was again lying down, his legs twitching with pain as he was stitched up.
This meant so much. After 12 years and 24 goals in 120 international appearances, "Schweini" leaves a proud legacy, with Germany having reached at least the semi-final stage of the past six major tournaments. Germany's midfield titan Bastian Schweinsteiger ensures his country finally tastes glory after a World Cup final against Argentina where no quarter was given. Above all there was Schweinsteiger. Löw oozed positivity beforehand predicting that whatever the result Germany could dominate world football for years to come and there is a body of evidence to support that claim in the impressive group of young players he has helped assemble with the likes of Manuel Neuer, Boateng, Kroos, Khedira, Götze, Thomas Müller, André Schürrle, Julian Draxler, Mesut Özil – the list goes on. Two Argentina players, Mascherano and Sergio Agüero, could have been sent off because of their desperate efforts to stop the 29‑year-old who got stronger and more defiant as he drove his team forward.

It may not have been an open final, a free-scoring game, but Löw refused to follow the route taken by Louis Van Gaal in Holland’s semi-final against Argentina when the Dutch coach tried to stop Messi by man-marking him with Nigel de Jong and stifling the space. And all this from a player who has been hampered by serious injury, who came into this World Cup struggling for fitness with damaged knees and with coach Joachim Löw doubting whether he could last 90 minutes, interchanging him with Khedira as he nursed them both back.
