The only thing special about 2014? The World Cup. Just kidding. It’s impossible to put together all the great moments we’ve experienced in the world of football through the last 12 months but these gifs which focus on some less glorious moments along with some brilliant goals and some that are simply funny make a pretty good effort of producing a well rounded and complete product.

So what did we have? Suarez biting, Messi being stopped, Cristiano Ronaldo actually missing the target from time to time, Fred diving, Carlos Tevez running and still running, Jeremy Menez getting very cheeky and many many more.
