Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have knocked out the Spanish giants this week to confirm that there will, for the first time ever, be an all-German final in the European Cup/UEFA Champions League history of the competition. Bayern proved to be too strong physically and far more advanced on a tactical scale in comparison to Barcelona, the club that has set the benchmark for European football in recent years, winning 7-0 on aggregate. Dortmund's high pressing and ruthlessness on the counter saw them deservedly knock out an expensive Real Madrid squad, coached by one of the best coaches in the world, who are still looking for their tenth European crown. The mental strength displayed by both sides was something that was said to have been lacking in recent years from German sides, especially when coming up against the Italian and Spanish sides. That has been put to bed this season by these two German clubs. So how does this all translate to the German national team ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil? How can this evidence of physical and tactical superiority play its way in Joachim Low's plans for next year's finals? What needs to be done to translate this into international success? Discuss please.
