Google has posted a new doodle today as part of its ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018 doodle series to celebrate the game of football. Today’s doodle marks the fifth day of the World Cup. As previously reported, the event will be held at 12 venues in 11 cities in Russia. Over the next month, “men’s national teams” from 32 countries across the globe will compete against the other for the top spot.

The event will have 64 matches in total with the final set to take place at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15, 2018. Google has invited and it is featuring guest artists from each of the 32 nations where each illustration by the quest artist is his/her “interpretation” of the question, “What football looks like in my country.” Today’s doodle includes illustrations from artists from Belgium, England, Panama, South Korea, Sweden, and Tunisia. The reason for these countries is because of the corresponding matches between Belgium Vs Panama, Sweden Vs South Korea, and England Vs Tunisia.

The search giant has invited Sam Vanallemeersch from Belgium, Celyn Brazier from England, Juan Tang Hon from Panama, Subin Yang from South Korea, Linnea Sterte from Sweden, and Noha Habaibe from Tunisia as the artists for the illustrations. The page details all the answers by the artists on what football is like in their respective countries.

It also features the early sketches and drafts of illustrations that the artists worked on before submitting the final version. The sketches reveal that some of the artists worked on absolutely different styles and designs before settling on a final one. Looking at the reach section of the doodle details page, it is not available in China, Mongolia and a majority of the middle east. It is also not available in the United States, Canada, Iceland and the Caribbean islands. It is available in almost all places except the mentioned ones.
