Presenting: The Official World Cup Team Slogans Of All 32 Countries Competing At Brazil 2014

FIFA recently revealed the 32 winners of the competition they had been running over the past few weeks, which has seen fans from across the world voting to decide the official team slogans for each and every country participating at this summer’s World Cup.

As far as we can tell, FIFA produced six possible slogans for each country and then allowed fans to vote for their favourite, with each respective winning slogan to now be plastered across the flanks of the Hyundai coaches that will be ferrying teams around Brazil during the tournament.

Here they all are, in alphabetical order…

Algeria: Desert warriors in Brazil

Argentina: Not just a team, we are a country

Australia: Socceroos: hopping our way into history!

Belgium: Expect the impossible!

Bosnia and Herzegovina: Dragons in heart, dragons on the field!

Brazil: Brace yourselves! The 6th is coming!

Cameroon: A lion remains a lion

Chile: Chi Chi Chi!, Le Le Le! Go Chile

Colombia: Here travels a nation, not just a team!

Costa Rica: My passion is football, my strength is my people, my pride is Costa Rica

Ivory Coast: Elephants charging towards Brazil!

Croatia: With fire in our hearts, for Croatia all as one!

Ecuador: One commitment, one passion, only one heart, this is for you Ecuador!

England: The dream of one team, the heartbeat of millions!!

France: Impossible is not a French word

Germany: One nation, one team, one dream!

Ghana: Black Stars: here to illuminate Brazil

Greece: Heroes play like Greeks

Honduras: We are one country, one nation, five stars on the heart

Iran: Honour of Persia

Italy: Let’s paint the Fifa World Cup dream blue

Japan: Samurai, the time has come to fight!

South Korea:Enjoy it, Reds!

Mexico: Always united, always Aztecas

Holland: Real men wear orange

Nigeria: Only together we can win

Portugal: The past is history, the future is victory

Russia: No one can catch us

Spain: Inside our hearts, the passion of a champion

Switzerland: Final stop: 07-13-14 Maracana!

Uruguay: Three million dreams … let’s go Uruguay

USA: United by team, driven by passion

Aren’t company-appointed slogans great?!

According to several reports, Belgium have already refused to acknowledge their slogan, “Expect the impossible”, as it apparently features a fairly clunky grammatical error once translated into French.

Great work, FIFA!

    You completely misinterpreted the Dutch-language article you link to regarding the Belgian slogan.
    It says the FIFA imposed the slogan unilaterally but the Dutch translation is gramatically incorrect since it is a literal translation of a French-language slogan.
    The Belgian Football Association are now blaming the FIFA for this error. So 60% of the Belgian population can now look forward to a mangled slogan , courtesy of the FIFA. Well done from the bureaucrats.

    LOL @Russia “No one can catch us” … sounds more like they’ll be fleeing the stadium.

  3. Steve says:

    If any team has picked a dodgy slogan, it has to be Germany. While it may be intentional, its remarkable similarity to a previous political slogan, they had from the 1930s to the end of the WWII, must raise a few eyebrows.

    How can someone complain about the “Ariel 88″ saga, and not this. Surely it can’t be!

  4. TravisKOP says:

    Germany slogan eerily resembles the WW2 propaganda of “Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer” Just thought id point that out

  5. Yashar says:

    Honor of Persia! The most racist slogan ever. Iran is a multi-ethnic country. Persians in most form 40% of country’s population. As an Iranian Turkmen I hate this slogan!

    • Ray says:

      It is not so hard to understand! Persia referes to all the people living in Iran. Turks, Balouchs, Kurds,..etc., who live in Iran, are Iranian, or Persian. Do not spread hate.

  6. Fat Nakago says:

    So….the Socceroos are hopping their way into history??

    Well….pull me up a chair!

  7. Pourya says:

    “Honour of Persia”, love it. Go persians! Make Iran proud.
