2002 World Cup Final
Travel to Germany Germany vs Travel to Brazil Brazil in Yokohama (0:2)

Ronaldo Wins Golden Boot and Golden Trophy

Brazil kicked off the 17th World Cup Final.

Germany's first goal chance was wasted when the free-kick on the right of the area was passed short rather than aimed at the heads of Miroslav Klose and Marco Bode.

While both teams took a while to settle in, Pierluigi Collina made his mark on the game with two yellow cards in the first ten minutes.

In the 19th minute, Ronaldinho sent Ronaldo through on Oliver Kahn. The tournament's leading goalscorer clipped the ball with the outside of his foot.... wide.

Ten minutes later, Ronaldo missed his second chance to beat Oliver Kahn.

Apart from Ronaldo's two chances, the first 40 minutes of the 2002 World Cup Final has not really set the world alight.

With half-time drawing nearer, Kléberson received the ball in plenty of space... and when Christoph Metzelder failed to challenge him, tried his luck with a low drive that missed the target.

Brazil continued to search for the opening goal but with Germany holding tight at the back, Kléberson cracked a shot against the bar from just outside the area.

And just before the whistle, Ronaldo turned on a Roberto Carlos through ball and blasted his shot against Oliver Kahn's right shin.

Brazil could have been 5-0 up at half-time.... but Germany are still in the game.

Half-time: Germany 0 - Brazil 0

Germany had their best chance, straight after the re-start, when Jens Jeremies stopped to head from a corner. Edmílson cleared the attempt relatively easy.

In the 49th minute, Oliver Neuville's 30-metre free-kick slammed against the right post as Germany started to feel a little more confident.

Then at the other end, Oliver Kahn screamed at his defence to get out and, as Roberto Carlos' curling cross came over, was almost caught out by Gilberto Silva's header and follow-up.

Leading Goalscorers 0:1
Oliver Kahn couldn't hold Rivaldo's low drive and Ronaldo ran on to put Brazil in front on 67 minutes.

Substitutions
Germany brought on Oliver Bierhoff for Miroslav Klose and Gerald Asamoah for Jens Jeremies, as Germany needed to be more effective up front.

Leading Goalscorers 0:2
Ronaldo made amends for France 98 by scoring his second goal in the 2002 World Cup Final, after Rivaldo dummied Kléberson's cross.

Time ran out for Germany but at least they woud be sure of a place in the next World Cup finals - Germany 2006 - while Brazil, as holders would have to qualify.

Congratulations to Brazil for winning the World Cup for a record fifth time.
