From Cristiano Ronaldo’s thrilling free kick and Germany’s tragic exit to Diego Maradona’s epic collapse — the 2018 FIFA World Cup has managed to keep us on the edge of our seats with its exciting yet fast-changing games. With 32 teams competing for the title of world champions, the 21st edition of World Cup has some of the finest players in history gracing the stage.
For the immense love that we have for this sport and its players, we have compiled some of the best wallpapers of the players of the 2018 World Cup.
1. The Mighties
Did you know that Antonio Carbajal (Mexico) and Lothar Matthaeus (Germany) hold the record for most World Cup appearances?
2. Cristiano Ronaldo: Superhuman
This image is a flawless interpretation of the talent of the Portuguese footballer. You may want to clear out your desktop icons though, for this image to shine through!
3. Lionel Messi: The Argentinian Legend
Lionel Messi’s first goal in the 2018 World Cup was against Nigeria. And it was quite a good one.
4. Neymar Jr: Brazil’s Hope
There are many things that work for this image. It combines the coolness of green and the warmth of yellow, and yes, the aggression of Neymar Jr (though he doesn’t look aggressive in the image, but formidable nonetheless).
5. Gareth Bale: The Runner
Did you know that Gareth Bale was always a fast runner? He once completed a 100m dash in 11.4 seconds when he was just a 14-year-old.
6. Antoine Griezmann: Les Bleus
Football was never about being calm and serene. Yet if you’re looking for a calm moment in this adrenaline-pumping game, this one is your best bet.
7. Romelu Lukaku: Golden Boot Winner?
Aim for the stars and land on the moon. Seeing this image of Romelu in mid-air, it very well looks like it!
8. Paulo Dybala: La Joya
It’s believed that Paulo Dybala was given the nickname of ‘La Joya’ by Argentinian journalist Marcos Villalobos. La Joya means ‘The Jewel’.
9. Luka Modric: The Croatian Captain
For the Luka Modric fan in you, this wallpaper is the perfect backdrop for your PC. Yellow, as a happy color, will bring warmth and watching Modric in action will motivate you to rise and conquer the day!
10. Eden Hazard: On Par with Messi?
I love the color scheme of this wallpaper. The red of the football jersey complements the bokeh effect created by the background light.
11. Sergio Ramos: The Bullfighting Fan
Spain’s Sergio Ramos captains both Real Madrid and the Spain national team.
12. Harry Kane: The English Star
If you love to have distressed wallpapers as your desktop background, here’s one that fits the bill perfectly. Harry Kane, England’s star performer against a dark brown background.
13. Football Gear: Ball of Fire
Did you know that in 1424, King James I of Scotland banned football in England? Surprisingly, the act stayed in place for several centuries. Imagine the Football world without the English players.
14. On the Ball
This grass, the boot and the ball — the football world in a single picture.
15. Boot up
The Adidas Copa Mundial boots were one of the best selling football boots. They were initially designed for the 1982 FIFA World Cup held in Spain.
Who Will Be the Winner?
Who will be the winner of FIFA World Cup 2018? With the defending champions Germany making a tragic exit, it’d be interesting to watch if the coveted title is won by one of the underdogs.
