The games are getting harder and harder as the World Cup continues to dwindle down to the world's best teams of the year. We're taking a look at some of the competing countries' unique national flowers, most of which are just as beautiful and fun to look at as the players themselves ;)
Just as bold as their players, Brazil's national flower is the bright and unusual Cattleya Orchid.
Colombia has cruised through of their games this World Cup. Similar to Brazil, Colombia's national flower is also the Cattleya Orchid.
Unfortunately, Belgium defeated the U.S. in an intense game that ended 2-1. Belgium's players were ecstatic to move on to another round of the World Cup. Their national flower is the bright and vibrant Common Red Poppy.
Argentina is another South American team still running strong in the race towards the World Cup finals. The Ceibo is their national flower. The flower itself is very light, just like how the players have to be light on their feet!
France has practically destroyed all of the teams they have played in their previous games. The meaning of the Iris is hope and wisdom, so maybe the team listened to what the flower means when playing their games!
Germany is a forced to be reckoned with in this World Cup being one of the major contenders within the race to win the World Cup. Germany's national flower is the unusual and abstract Knapweed.
