The beautiful game lends itself perfectly to art, with its flowing moves, delicate touches and moments of inspiration. OK, not when you're talking about Pepe or James Milner, but you get our drift.

Artist Rafael Mayani has captured his favourite World Cup players in full flight in this series of fantastic illustrations, which are available to buy on society6.com.

Pirlo, Ronaldo and Drogba are all present and correct. So is Iker Casillas - whether he is still one of Rafael's favourite players after his shocker of a tournament, we're not sure, but he looks good here.
