Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography. This week, with all that action happening in France at EURO 2016 and in the US at COPA América Centenario, we celebrated some creative takes on the game of soccer.

Abstract results
After each game at EURO 2016, the Twitter account @lebeaujeu_fr releases a beautifully-designed abstract infographic about the result. The most esoteric analysis of the beautiful game is the work of designer Nico Pigelet and London studio, Accept & Proceed.

Watch the full commercial to find out more.
