This will be my last World Cup visualization. I took from Marca.com all the comments the readers left in each match between Spain and other countries. More than 25.000.
The first graph show the evolution of the most used words. The second one only the names of the players and, of course, the coach. The graph, in both cases, shows an average number in groups of 30 comments.
The face of ‘de Bosque’ has the most used words sized proportional to number of times the word appears.
It was funny to notice how the battle between Spain and Argentina was beyond the championship itself.

World Cup made with portraits of the 23 players of the Spanish soccer team. There is more than 6.000 little portraits.
Due to the shirt of the players, the cup takes a nice color between gold and red. It’s indeed a red World Cup.
My first World Cup visualization, but not the last (I am working on others).
David Villa, the striker of Spanish national team with the word ‘goal’ in more than 10 languages.
In memoriam of Pedro Garrido… because he will probably die if Spain doesn’t win the World Cup.
