With the round-round play at the World Cup in Brazil officially over, we look back at some of the great performances and moments during the last two weeks:

Joining a legend

Germany’s Miroslav Klose scores his 15th career World Cup goal against Ghana, tying Brazil legend Ronaldo for the all-time mark.

Not Messi-ing around

Lionel Messi rescues Argentina with game-winning goal against Iran.

The prodigal son

Brazil’s Neymar scores two goals in 4-1 victory over Cameroon.

Just in time

With the U.S. on the verge of defeating Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo setup a picture-perfect goal to Varela in one of the most thrilling finishes you'll ever see at the World Cup.

Before the insanity

Before another infamous bite, Luis Suarez was a star. He showed it by scoring two goals against England.

100 points

Super Mario may have been subbed off at halftime against Uruguay, but he left us with the best meme of the tournament so far.
