Phil Jones and the 13 funniest stickers from Panini's 2018 World Cup album

Ah, yes, it's that time of the quadrennial – when adult responsibility makes way for childhood regression and (deeply) competitive collecting. But we're not sure about these ones... 

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Panini's 2018 World Cup sticker book hit shelves a week ago now, making grown folk up and down the nation giddy with excitement.

That might be tempered in a few weeks when we pick up Johan Djourou's sticker for the fifth time, but until then we're only too happy to hop aboard this bashful bandwagon as we count down the days until June 14. 

This lot below, however, just aren't quite right. Clearly, England + Photoshop equals disaster...
