13 Days: WORLD CUP 2014 COUNTDOWN - Posters And Slogans

Fc_14wc_world-cup_440x660
With the growth of social media, every World Cup becomes not only an on-field spectacle, but an online extravaganza. Every nation, every corporation is out there attaching their creativity and visions to the event. In that vein, the ESPN posters produced in comicbook style by artist Cristiano Siqueira really stood out for me, and so in all their glory I present them for you. Choose a side and update your phone wallpaper.  I have combined them with the official slogans for each team, which range from the ridiculous to the sublime. The standouts include: France disowning a word they created; England's misuse of the English language; and Germany's unfortunate jingoism. There is plenty to amuse and inspire.  In my opinion, the winner of the slogan competition is Bosnia and Herzegovina, you can't go wrong with Dragons. Of course, this will be the only thing they do win.
