Another FIFA World Cup is in the books. We're only 1425 days away from the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and honestly, those days can't tick by fast enough. This World Cup has been hailed (on Twitter, of course) as the "best World Cup ever." That isn't wrong, either. This really was the best. In the United States, interest in soccer hit an all-time high thanks to Complex's World Cup Guide, and we fell in love with #IBelieve. Just about every match had its thrills, and we witnessed results of tremendous historical importance.

From Germany's 7-1 mauling of Brazil to John Anthony Brooks, this is The Best and Worst of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in GIFs.
