But Germany missed out on a knockout spot to Spain and Japan.
And while enjoying some family time with stunning wife, Ann-Kathrin Brommel, and son Rome, Gotze was supporting Argentina on their quest for World Cup glory.
Argentina took the lead twice in the 3-3 thriller, and won the penalty shootout 4-2.
Messi scored a brace in 120 minutes and set the tone, as a captain should, in the shootout.
And Gotze was more than pleased to see Messi finally win a world crown.
Gotze and Rome wildly celebrated Argentina’s win, and the footballer even posted an edited photo of a smiling 35-year-old Messi consoling his 2014 younger self.
Messi said in an Instagram post nearing 41million likes: “CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!
“So many times I dreamed it, so much I wanted it that I still don’t fall, I can’t believe it……
“Thank you so much to my family, to all who support me and also to all who believed in us.
“We prove once again that Argentinians when we fight together and united we are able to achieve what we aim.
“The merit is of this group, which is above individuals, is the strength of all fighting for the same dream that was also the one of all Argentinians…
“We did it!!! LET’S GO ARGENTINA DAMN!!!!! We’re seeing each other very soon…”
