World Cup 2014: Minimalist Posters of Memorable Football Moments

13 Jul

There have been some incredible moments at this World Cup. I’ll never forget Tim Cahill’s goal vs Netherlands. That has to be one of, if not THE, goal of this tournament. Xherdan Shaqiri’s thunderbolt vs Honduras was so good, even in a game which saw him net two more. There was Memo Ochoa’s performance vs Brazil. How calm he was, just chewing his gum, moving to and fro across the goal with ease, his hair perfectly coiffed with the headband. There were also Keylor Navas’ go-go-gadget performances vs everyone. And Tim Howard vs Belgium. So many memorable moments.

Designer Rick Hincks has taken some of these moments, and ones from past World Cups and other matches, and created these great minimalist posters. Each poster notes the date, time, and location of the moment and plots out the actual play(s).

Hincks does take requests, though I noticed today he has temporarily stopped doing so because he has received so many recently. Guess we’ll have to wait on Sergio’s Champions League final poster for a bit. That header deserves a poster, don’t you agree?

    How did Iniesta do anything in the 116th minute for Spain if they only played group stage games?

      Iniesta won the 2010 World Cup for Spain by scoring a goal in the 116th minute.
