EXOS-Powered Germany Advances to World Cup Final
After advancing to a record fourth consecutive World Cup semifinal and third straight semifinal appearance supported by EXOS, Germany's impressive and historic 7-1 victory over the host team, Brazil, has led them to their first FIFA World Cup final since 2002, where they'll face Argentina. After winning Group G, Germany defeated Algeria 2-1 in the round of 16 and beat France 1-0 in the quarterfinals before their semifinal victory over Brazil.
The final will be played on Sunday, July 13, at 3 p.m. EST in Rio de Janeiro.
