The group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup has come and gone, but it will live long in the memory. The first round seemed to have everything: last-minute goals, hat tricks, free kicks, bloodied faces, upsets — and yet another reigning champion bowing out before the round of 16.

The Players’ Tribune has been curating the best photos from each day of the tournament so far, capturing the jubilation, heartbreak and spectacle of the last two weeks.

Check out some of our favorites.
