The mighty pups of the World Cup

A wildlife photographer has created the ultimate soccer world PUP with each national team matched to a breed of dog. Renowned photographer Eric Isselée has combined the national breeds of each team with their World Cup jerseys. Belgian, Eric pulled together his skill photographing animals and his love of the beautiful game to create these hilarious images. Eric, 47, usually uses his talents for the Life On White project photographing endangered and rare animals on white backgrounds to highlight their plight in the wild. He said, 'A colleague of mine had this great idea to combine our skills and the World Cup in Brazil', and so he did. (CATERS NEWS)
