The Google Doodle team outdid itself during this year’s World Cup, posting a total of 63 World Cup inspired Google logos from the start of the tournament until yesterday’s final game.

To kick-off the FIFA 2014 World Cup, Google posted the above image of Rio De Janerio on its global homepage on June 12. The animated illustration included the World Cup host city landscape, along with cable cars traveling up to Sugarloaf Mountain, and Brazil’s famous Christ the Redeemer statue.

Many of Google’s World Cup logos were game-specific like this one posted on June 16 for the United States versus Ghana game:

One World Cup Google logo drew unwanted attention when the Google Doodle team mistakenly used the Ghana flag in place of the Cameroon flag for the logo highlighting the Mexico versus Cameroon game on June 13:

Later the Google Doodle team apologized for the error on Twitter, poking fun at itself by tweeting, “p.s. thanks to followers for calling attention to the graphical error in our Mexico vs Cameroon doodle. We’re not Ghana let it happen again.”

Other logos reflected the overall enthusiasm around the tournament, like the following office-inspired animation, showing the Google letters sneaking a game in the conference room:
