Germany have a secret plan to shut Argentina superstar Lionel Messi out of Sunday's World Cup final at Rio de Janeiro's iconic Maracana Stadium.This is the sixth time Germany will meet Argentina at the World Cup and the second time in the final.On their most recent meeting, Messi scored two years ago when Argentina enjoyed a 3-1 win over 10-man Germany in a Frankfurt friendly. Germany lost the Mexico 1986 final 3-2 to Argentina, then took revenge four years later by winning the Italia 1990 final 1-0 when Argentina finished with nine men in Rome.Argentina legend Maradona played in both matches, but Germany striker Miroslav Klose said neither match has any relevance now.
