It must be said that this year's World Cup is certainly living up to its festival of football tag. We've had some incredible matches over the last few weeks, with the last 16 knockout stage providing memorable moments that will live on far beyond the tournament's end.

And we're very thankful that we saw and heard it on some great home entertainment kit.
