After an eventful knockout round, we’re down to the last eight teams (BRA v COL, GER v FRA, ARG v CRC, NED v BEL) in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The quarters begin this midnight (that's Saturday, July 5, 12 a.m.), but the break definitely left us feeling a bit football-deprived. Sure, we're only a few hours away from two possibly tense, will-make-you-pee-a-bit-in-excitement games (Brazil takes on Columbia in the first match, then Germany faces France at 4 a.m.), but nobody can die from too much football, right?
Hence, FHM's massive highlight reel of everything funny, goal-y, sexy, and GIF-worthy that happened from Day 1 to 16! Better sit down before you scroll down, bro, this one promises to be a doozy!
PART I: CELEBRATIONS!

And of course, you got to have those Latino “GOOOOOOL!” calls
