Calm down, it’s okay. Yes, I’m allergic to professional sports as my time is too consumed by movies, TV and video games to devote any time to following any of the scenes, but I do have a weak spot every four years for the World Cup, and I’ll be damned if I was going to let all this awesome art slip by because it wasn’t directly pop culture-related.
I’m not quite sure where these came from, if they’re ESPN promotional materials or just a fan’s creations, but they’re amazing. They show each of the 32 qualifying teams of the World Cup, usually highlight one to three of their best players, along with a phrase that represents them. Do you guys in the rest of the world really still call us Yanks? That’s kind of hilarious. Check out the entire series below.
