RIO - Former Pirates captain Jimmy Tau says it is very difficult to pick a winner in tonight's World Cup final.

Argentina and Germany go head to head at the MaracanĂ£ in Rio De Janeiro at 9pm.

With so little between the teams, Tau says tonight's victor will be the one that perform for a full 90 minutes.

"I think the strength will lie in the team that lasts the endurance of the match in terms of the match tempo, structure and most importantly, it's the team that's going to take its chances."

Meanwhile, these fans told EWN Sport who they think will walk away with the world title.

"Messi; he's the man who makes the difference. He only needs to do one thing and if he does it, they've got it."

"It might just go into extra time, but I think Germany may just take it."

"Germany has been building this since 2006. I think it's their time."
