World cup final later today. Germany versus Argentina, airing right here on ABC. And ESPN's Mike tirico leads the coverage. He joins us from Rio. And Mike, what a thrill this must be for you. No single sporting event is bigger than this. It is incredible, George. The estimates from the last world cup final showed over 700 million people watching. If you bump it up a little bit, about 10% of the world will stop and watch this soccer match today. Nothing stops the world like a world cup final. How do you see the game? A lot of people see Argentina, world's best player, Lionel mes mess, versus Germany, the world's best team. Is that how you see it? Yes, mess is one of the greats globally all time. This is seen as the missing line in his resume. Can he get a world cup title to really be one of the true greats in the game? Germany, going for a fourth world cup title. Only the host nation, Brazil, has more with five. They're a machine. A team built to win now and for the future. They're the slight favorite coming in. Though the beach behind me in Rio, feels like buenos aires. Argentines sleeping out overnight. Camping out. They'll be all over this town and try to rub it in the face of the Brazilians if they can win a world cup on the Brazilian soil. It's been a rough week for Brazil.
