Google is celebrating day five of the FIFA World Cup 2014 with a doodle featuring a ‘Mexican wave’. The animated doodle shows a host of letters depicting football fans jumping up and down in a synchronous manner creating a Mexican wave.

In between the jumbled letters are six characters forming the word Google. The letter ‘L’ however misses the wave and is last to standup. When you click on the doodle, you are redirected to Google’s search page for all World Cup 2014 related news that also includes scores and match schedules.

The Mexican wave was first performed at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. The wave was initially called ‘La Ola’. That World Cup was eventually won by Argentina, and it was also the tournament which saw Diego Maradona’s infamous ‘Hand of God’ goal.

Google has been putting up new doodles everyday to depict the match being played at that moment. It also put up a doodle before the opening ceremony kicked off and one the next day too.
