Former England defender Rio Ferdinand believes that Germany could dominate international football after winning the 2014 World Cup.

Former England defender Rio Ferdinand has claimed that Germany could go on to dominate international football following their World Cup success.

Joachim Low's side saw off Argentina 1-0 in the Maracana on Sunday evening to win the competition for the fourth time.

"Domination goes in cycles. Spain did it before and now Germany look like they can dominate for years to come," Ferdinand told BBC Sport.

"This isn't a project started last year by the German FA. It's something that has been in the making for the last 10 years.

"These players have played together at international youth level, Under-21 level. Now they're world champions."

Germany's World Cup success is their first tournament win since lifting the 1996 European Championship.
