Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella describes Germany as "fearsome opponents" ahead of the World Cup final.

Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella has admitted that Germany are "fearsome" ahead of the World Cup final.

The two footballing heavyweights meet in Rio de Janeiro this evening (Sunday) with the biggest prize in the sport up for grabs.

While Sabella has insisted that his players will give their all tonight, the 59-year-old concedes that the Germans will provide extremely tough opposition.

"They're a great team. On top of the solidity and spirit that have always characterised German football, they have some players with a South-American touch," he told FIFA.com.

"What's more, they have a settled style of play that's been in place for many years, which they are constantly refining. You could say they are fearsome opponents."

Argentina reached the World Cup final by defeating the Netherlands on penalties in the last four.
