Adidas release excellent animated highlights montage to mark the end of the World Cup [Video]

The World Cup has ended but it leaves behind plenty of enjoyable memories for us to cherish and recall fondly in the future.

Adidas have featured some of those very moments in a highlights montage video to mark the end of the tournament including goals, saves, tackles and colourful fans like Watermelon Head.

Robin Van Persie’s diving header against Spain and the subsequent high five he gave Louis Van Gaal feature in the animated clip, as does Lionel Messi’s last minute strike against Iran.

Sponsored by Adidas, Messi is the brand’s prized player and eyebrows were raised when he received the Golden Ball after last night’s game despite his form clearly fading after the group stage.

But lower those eyebrows for the minute and watch this excellent video below.
