    Rooney is the least relevant player on Englands squad, how is he considered the face of the team? How about Captain fantastic.

    • John Thomas says:

      I agree 100%. When has Rooney ever done anything aside from disappoint at the world cup? Zero goals at cup. Should be captain fantastic.

    • eltricolor2014 says:

      oh sure, have either Grampy Lampy or Slippery Stevie as the elder poster boy. Don’t slip up, England!

  2. David says:

    Is it June 12th yet?

  3. hrvat1066 says:

    stupid amateurs, croatia is not using cyrillic, serbs do, this is an insault, they commited genocides in the croatian war of independance and now they put their writting? WTF

  4. RJ says:

    Love the Dutch version. Didn’t expect to like the U.S. poster as much as I do.

  5. Kenny says:

    I always like it when ESPN makes these posters. Like the 2010 World Cup posters better than this year’s though…

    • Christopher Harris says:

      I agree. I like the 2012 ones, but I thought the 2010 ones were better. But they were a completely different style and angle.

  6. Sam Jay says:

    For me Russia was first, then Italy! Although I’m a Three Lions fan myself. Overall sketches could be better like those of 2012.

  7. mohammad says:

    so good.Wish to Italy Pirlo and Buffon were used

  8. seba says:

    Insault for Croatia, stupid American

    • Pedro says:

      Why is it a insult…looks good.
      If you are referring to two letters in there that are Cyrillic but dont actually sound like what they are written down as. Than you my friend have serb fobia as far as I can say.

  9. krle says:

    fake cyrillic font for Croatia, parabens idiota

  10. Theo says:

    The ESPN World Cup posters designed and launched by ESPN are truly fantastic!! Very well done indeed. However, the Greece one is very grammatically wrong. The word should say “ΕθΝΙΚΗ”.
    It is being criticized by media and on social media sites, blogs, etc.

    It is intended to read: “ΕθΝΙΚΗ” meaning “NATIONAL”. “ΣΤΗΠΙΚΙ” is not even close to a word.

    I am hoping the correct as it is unfair that such a great piece of art is being criticized for grammar.

    • george says:

      Thanks for the clarification. I was looking at the word for Greece and couldnt for the life of me understand what it was suppose to say…its a real sham too, because it is a great looking piece.

  11. IvanHR says:

    WTF yankess!!! Serbia use cyrillic alphabet!! Croatia the same of us, donkeys!!!

  12. patrick says:

    can we buy these?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Good question. I asked ESPN that question when I met with them in New York recently. They said that the posters aren’t for sale because they don’t have the rights to use the player images (to sell the posters). ESPN will be distributing the posters to select bars and pubs across the country as part of their promotional effort, so maybe you can find one at your local pub soon.

  13. nick says:

    They made up letters for Russia, since when did Cyrillic contain a forward facing R?

  14. Vahid says:

    im Iranian and i think Uruguay’s poster is very fantastic than all.
    I hope which team is qualified, becomes champion.

  15. sina hp says:

    IRAN, team melli (intl team) we support u guys, Rock it!

  16. Amir says:

    very Nice..
    Forzza Rosonerri…

  17. Pedro says:

    Russian and Bosnian ones are the best by far.
