Berlin: The boot with which Mario Goetze struck the World Cup-winning goal this year has raised two million euros (US$2.45m) for the German charity event "A Heart for Children", the organisers revealed on Saturday.

The 22-year-old Bayern Munich star donated to the charity the left boot with which he scored the only goal, in extra-time, aginst Argentina and seal Germany`s fourth World Cup title in Brazil.

All of 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."
