It’s the World Cup all over again with countries earning honour and glory by kicking balls into goals and getting paid mad monies for it. Meanwhile, the artistically-savvy are portraying their love for the global sport the only way how: through the medium of anime and manga.

Besides, we’ve added in some anime renditions of the 2018 mascot Zabivaka to balance it all out.
