2014 World Cup ended with the victory of Germany, which defeated 1-0 Argentina in the final after extra time and took its fourth title. The only goal has been scored by Mario Götze, who collected André Schürrle's cross from the left on his chest before volleying a high left-footed shot into the net.
I really enjoyed doing this series of illustrations about FIFA World Cup. These have been featured in several blogs, magazines and special projects such as World Cup Legends and EDITION29, magazine for the Apple iPad / Tablets. It is always a pleasure when a personal project made for fun interests so many people from different countries.
See you in 2018!
The last FIFA World Cup edition took place in South Africa. In the final, Spain defeated third-time finalists the Netherlands 1–0 after extra time, with Andrés Iniesta's goal. Spain claimed their first world title and confirmed theirself as one of the strongest team ever, winning also two consecutives European championship in 2008 and 2012.
It has been a real pleasure illustrating these football moments. The next edition held in Brasil is coming this summer and I can't wait to do some drawings about it!
Glad to know that San Antonio Spurs' player Marco Belinelli won the Three-Point Shootout at the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Born in Bologna, he played in both teams of our city between 2001 and 2007 before moving to NBA.
