The FIFA World Cup 2014 moves into the last sixteen this week with many of the expected teams qualifying (Brazil, Mexico, Holland, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica) and some unexpected early knock-outs (previous winners Spain, Italy, England). Amongst the surprise successes have been the USA (who may qualify depending on the result of their game against Germany), Nigeria, Greece and Algeria—teams that have all performed better than their odds.

While nations put their hope in eleven men on the pitch, a large swathe of Brazilians have been demonstrating over the cost of the whole tournament—money that may have been better spent on helping the poor, as one demonstrator put it:

“The party in the stadiums is not worth tears in the favelas,”

2014 marks the twentieth World Cup and it’s the second time the competition has been played in Brazil. These are the posters for all twenty tournaments from the first held in Uruguay 1930.
