The 2018 World Cup, hosted in Russia has been memorable for a variety of reasons. While the football has been sublime, the internet has taken memes and memories of a different nature from the #2018WC.
Adnan Januzaj may have scored a sublime goal for Belgium, but Michy Batshuayi immortalised himself in meme culture with this brilliant kick onto the post and back onto his own face.
England finally broke the hoodoo of never winning a World Cup penalty shootout in their history. And the whole country has exploded with ‘Its Coming Home’ memes. Here’s our favourite.
As a goalkeeping father-son duo, Peter and Kasper Schmeichel know the highs and lows of saving penalties. This tweet won all our hearts though!
Lost for words. Can’t be more proud of my country, my son, his teammates, all the staff and our fantastic national coach Åge Hareide. When all the tears have dried out we will realise how well we did ?? #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/vhGZQtDyJm

Stunning from Toni Kroos, that last-gasp free kick still did not keep the world champions in the 2018 World Cup. But, that won’t stop us watching it all over again. On loop. All night. Someone stop it.
Jorge Sampaoli was compared to an advertising exec and we can all relate!
