The Bayern Munich star donated to the charity the left boot with which he scored in extra-time, against Argentina to seal Germany's fourth World Cup title in Brazil. All the money will go to the German charity which helps disadvantaged children.

"Two million is such a huge sum, the good thing is that it's for a good cause and not just for a boot," Goetze told German daily Bild.
