The 2014 World Cup in 64 images

After a rather underwhelming tournament in South Africa four years ago, the World Cup rebounded with a bang in 2014 with some of the most exciting football seen for a long time (well, during the group stages anyway).

The 64 games provided so many memories and we decided to take one image from each of them to help you reflect on the last month or so.

Enjoy!
