This year, the football World Cup held in Russia saw some big upsets and even more big wins. Football biggies like Germany, Spain and Brazil were knocked out of the tournament and the underdogs emerged victorious. While we know that this month-long battle to take home the glorious cup is a serious matter, we couldn’t help but point out the many hilarious moments on and off the field that had us all in splits.

The winners of the 2014 FIFA World Cup were kicked out rather soon from the tournament. A very big shock definitely for many German supporters and also non-supporters. But they found joy in funny memes.
Off-Field ‘Legendary’ Antics
Special mention needs to be made of some of the off-field antics that involved Maradona and Croatian president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović.
