And they've actually created a different logo for each team:

United States:


google.com/logos/worldcup06.gi ...



England (despite the filename, it's not UK – it's England):


google.co.uk/logos/worldcup06_ ...



Germany:


google.co.uk/logos/worldcup06_ ...



Brazil:


google.co.uk/logos/worldcup06_ ...



etc...

/pd: it is spot the difference. They each are wearing different shirt/short colours to match those that they wear in the game.

Shouldn't that be orange?

The domain is irrelevant – it's the filename that changes:


google.com/logos/worldcup06_nl ...



BTW, see this comment for all the different team logos:

OT: Philipp – any chance you can put a permalink next to each comment in a thread? That would save us viewing the HTML source or double clicking the timestamp to get the comment ID whenever we need to refer to a specific comment...

Those images are definitely different. Perhaps you're not looking closely enough...

Good idea, you can now click on the date for that.

The a tags were alredy there. If you looked at the source code, you could've get it. It's weird to see a link that has a double-click event.

Great. I'm sure this will prove useful!

Yep, I knew that. (Which is why I said: "That would save us viewing the HTML source...") Don't forget that the double click event isn't for public use, so you can ignore that and just use the link as normal.

I think you can still link to it though...
Anyone got a collection of the World Cup 2002 Google logos?
