Our favorite photo blog has a compelling collection of “Goalposts Around the World” today in preparation for the World Cup :

All you need is a ball and something to kick it in. Around the world, goalposts are made from metal, wood, plastic, sticks, tape, or paint on a wall. Reuters photographers captured images of goalposts on every continent as the world gets ready to watch the 2014 Brazil World Cup, which opens on June 12.

A couple of our favorites are featured here, but visit The Big Picture for the full collection of 20.
