One of my favorite things about the World Cup is the tournament’s ability to unite people from around the world. This past month, all eyes were on Brazil, but the power of the beautiful game could be felt in every city, state, and nation. To capture this feeling, I asked friends from across the country and around the world to share their favorite World Cup photos. Take a look below to catch a glimpse of the unifying power of soccer!
