Buenos Aires:

Former Argentine footballer Diego Maradona said Germany are not "impossible" to beat in the upcoming final match of the 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup.

Germany are set to play Argentina Sunday for the championship title at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium, reports Xinhua.

"Germany is not impossible (to beat)," a media source cited Maradona as saying.

Maradona, who is in Brazil as a football commentator, was the national team coach at the 2010 South Africa World Cup, when Argentina lost 0-4 to Germany in the quarter-finals.

In their last match, the Germans devastated Brazil 7-1 in Tuesday's semi-final at Belo Horizonte's Mineirao Stadium.

In Argentina's last match, at Sao Paulo's Corinthians Arena Wednesday, the South American team played the Netherlands in a 0-0 draw in extra time, then defeated the Europeans in a penalty shootout that ended 4-2.
