So the carnival of football is finally over, and a brilliant German team have triumphed.

All that is left to do now is to look back at all the thrills, spills and memorable moments from an unforgettable tournament in Brazil. And what better way to do that than via 8-bit renderings of all of them?

Matheus Toscano runs the 8bit Football website, and has captured the best moments from the tournament in Sensible Soccer-esque detail.

Relive Fred's (alleged) dive, Pepe's headbutt, Cahill and Rodriguez's superstrikes, Suarez's indiscretion and Germany's 7 (seven) goals in glorious 8-bit below, and visit the 8bit Football website for more football moments.

Only 1424 days to go...
