A - Abysmal Asia
The continent's four teams failed to grab a win in Brazil, the first time Asia has gone without a victory at a World Cup since 1990 when United Arab Emirates and South Korea each lost all three group games.
Australia, Korea, Japan and Iran managed only three draws between them and all finished bottom of their respective groups.
B - Bite
Uruguay forward Luis Suarez was slapped with a World Cup record four month ban from soccer and suspended for nine international matches after sinking his teeth into the shoulder of Italy's Giorgio Chiellini.
Suarez initially denied the bite, before backtracking and apologizing after FIFA's punishment.
The fallout made it one of the most talked about incidents in Brazil, with everyone from pundits to presidents offering their opinion.
