The world cup final is a bigger game, but it's sort of a different type of soccer. In club soccer (like the champions league) the teams at the final stages tend to be just absolutely perfect. Because if the clubs have any defects in their squad, they can just go out and buy a better player in that position with no limitations other than their bank accounts (which is no limitation for the top tier Euro clubs.)
Where as in the World Cup, teams are limited by the playing pools of their nationality. The Americans can't go out and buy a better striker or left back as much as we wish we could. We have to work with what we've "developed" so to speak. So that usually means that the teams in the World Cup (even of the best nations) have more exploitable flaws.
To me that makes the World cup (while perhaps not the "best" soccer) by far the most exciting to watch.
But this debated all the time.
