World Cup magic captured in Microsoft Paint

Just like being there. But better

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

With the World Cup almost here, we're being bombarded with nostalgia - expensively packaged in the latest Blu-Ray and HD formats. But there's no need to invest in any of this, once you've seen what simple fan talent can do, when allied to the graphical might of Microsoft Paint.

This comes courtesy of Sunderland fans, who have recreated some of the most memorable moments in World Cup history for you via a thread on the fans' SMB message board. Here are some highlights:

Here's Frank Rijkaard's altercation with Rudi Voller in the 1990 World Cup:

And a personal favourite: Zaire's Illunga Mwepi dealing with the threat of a Brazilian free kick in 1974:

It's been wrapped up in a nice YouTube video, which only has 500 views so far, but surely deserves more.

Good work, gents. ®
