The World Cup reaches the fifth day of the championship this Monday (18th) and celebrated by Google with six different Doodles. The designs alternate with each other in place of the searcher's logo when the page is updated, and depict the countries that will participate in the three games today: Sweden and South Korea (which face each other at 9 am, in the time of Braslia), Belgium and Panama ( departure that occurs at noon), and Tunsia and England, which close the day with a dispute at 15h.
The variety of Doodles, which were created by native illustrators from each of the nations entering the field today, is part of the Google project for the 2018 World Cup: each of the drawings illustrates what football means for the country represented on them. The objective is to celebrate the richness of cultural diversity and the talent of the 32 nations participating in the World Cup.

The illustration designed by the South Korean Subin Yang brings adults and children watching a football match on the banks of a river, while eating fried chicken and cheering for their country. The unity and excitement of the people represents South Korea's interest in football, as Subin explains in saying what sport means to the nation: We see football beyond a sport. When the team wins a game, people are proud of their country.

The Belgian Doodle, made by Sam Vanallemeersch, has several elements and colors, which can make it a bit confusing at first. It is possible to watch a football match, while one of the players doubts with the coach at the same time that he kicks the ball towards the goal. In the background, a castle shows the audience watching the match.
