The World Cup is far, far more than a football tournament. It’s a time when all eyes are on 32 countries from across the planet, observing their athletes and their fans, as we find ourselves paying attention to and discussing countries that we never normally would (asides from the general FIFA corruption and ‘problems in football’ chat). Not sure about you, but I find myself discussing things away from the football. The culture of these countries, the population, what I think their people are like, what the country and land is like and where the youngsters play. A fan of photography, and still holding on to a mild obsession I once had with geography and differences in landscapes and terrains, I was very satisfied when I stumbled across these incredible images of all 32 counties in this years World Cup taken from space. Have a look at some below.
