As some of you may know, there is nothing in this world as near and dear to my heart as the game of football. As most of you probably know, football's crown jewel, the world cup, will be played in South Africa this summer. Umbro and Anomaly have collaborated with designers to reimagine seven countries' football crests.
The seven in question are the only nations ever to lift the prestigious Jules Rimet Trophy: England, France, Germany, Italy, Brasil, Argentina and Uruguay.
If you need help distinguishing what from what, at the top you have my favorite in Brasil, followed by Argentina, Uruguay, Italy, Germany, France, and England below.
Nike has a similar project that doesn't really measure up to the class and intricacy of the Umbro creations in my opinion, but they might be worth a look: go here.
