The tournament had us biting our nails and on the edge of our seats, but it also had us smiling and laughing during and after the games!

Does Antonio Rudiger always break into a stride like this? Many of you probably caught Rudiger’s iconic moment during Germany’s match against Japan when he created his own running style. We still don’t know what new technique he was trying but it did bring us all a good laugh!
Cristiano Ronaldo Celebrating a Goal That Wasn’t His
