Domestic football has taken a break for the next fortnight as international football returns.
The World Cup finished less than two months ago, but with Euro 2016 qualifiers and other important fixtures to worry about, Germany's success has quickly become a distant memory.
It's all about the future now and on Wednesday, we saw a glimpse of it.
In a rematch of the World Cup final, Germany entertained Argentina in Dusseldorf.
Whereas Joachim Low's side came out 1-0 winners at the Maracana in June, though, this time they were on the losing side as an Angel Di Maria-inspired Argentina ran out 4-2 winners.
A young England team took on Norway at a half-empty Wembley Stadium, winning 1-0 thanks to Wayne Rooney's second-half penalty.
Elsewhere, Russia beat Azaerbaijan 4-0, Turkey overcome Denmark 2-1 and USA defeated Czech Republic 1-0 at the Generali Arena in Prague—Alejandro Bedoya's goal proving enough for victory.
