You really ought to try out the quality of the artwork on that page, as you can download it, as well, if you’re from one of the countries participating at the World Cup. Here’s what more has been said about the partnership and also have a look at the video presenting it.

The site has fast, fluid touch navigation along with responsive web design to auto-fit any device you have. You can easily stay in-the-know whether you’re watching live from Brazil, decked out in your national kit at a local bar with friends, or stuck following along from your desk at work. A deft touch is essential for the world’s top players, and now touch is important for spectators too. Because IE is the only browser built from the ground up for touch you can pinch, zoom and bicycle kick (okay, maybe not bicycle kick, but we might have to suggest it to our engineering team) through the ESPN FC World Cup Essentials site, putting information about your favorite team, player or match right at your fingertips.
