Shortly after casual World Cup fans around the world were introduced to German midfielder Mario Goetze, who came on as a sub and scored the game-winning goal against Argentina, they met his model/singer girlfriend, Ann-Kathrin Brommel.
Goetze and Brommel were seen kissing on the pitch shortly after Goetze's 113th-minute strike propelled his country to its first World Cup title since 1990. And before long Brommel became a sensation in her own right.

Brommel, 23, is one year older than Goetze. According to reports, the pair have been together for two years.
Goetze has grown from a young phenom (he entered Borussia Dortmund's youth academy at 8) to a staple on powerful Bayern Munich. His $50 million transfer from Borussia to Bayern is the second most ever for a German player. He's said that he wants to be the Cristiano Ronaldo of Germany, and it appears he's well on his way thanks to his golden foot and model girlfriend.
