Google celebrates day 20 of FIFA World Cup 2018 with doodle from artists from four countries
The internet search engine and technology giant celebrates 20th day of FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia with a doodle depicting the footballing culture of the next batch of participating countries. The final match of the tournament will be held on July 15 at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The featured artists of today’s doodle on the home page of Google are Belgium’s Sam Vanallemeersch; Brazil’s Pedro Vergani; France’s Helene Leroux; and Uruguay’s Macarena Campos. The black logo on the top of the doodle is enclosed by the flags of the participating countries of the matches today.

According to Google, the comment of Brazil’s Pedro Vergani on the football culture in his country is: “Football in Brazil is a state of mind, a moment when the country gathers to celebrate (or cry) together. It is an expression of an important part of our culture; it is art, rhythm, dance, hard work, teamwork, and a dash of cheekiness.”

Google writes on its blog, “This year's Doodle series celebrates the rich cultures and talent of all 32 participating countries by featuring guest artists hailing from each nation! Tune in to catch all 32 Doodles throughout the games, each illustrating the artist's interpretation of "What ? looks like in my country.”
