For 13 years, Google has published a roundup what was most searched for around the world on a website called Google Zeitgeist. Zeitgeist collects more then 1000 lists from more than 70 countries that track the "spirit of the times" by looking at the people, places, and events that trended and were searched over the course of the year.

Of course, sports are included in those lists. Zeitgeist tracks the most searched athletes, sports, stadiums/arenas/ballparks, and teams, among many other categories. The 2013 edition of Zeitgeist was released recently, and with the 2014 World Cup only six months away we thought it would be fun to look at what soccer players and futbol teams were the most popular this year.
