WORLD CUP TROPHY DAMAGED BY MYSTERY GERMAN MAN


DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach has confessed that the cup given to them this summer by Fifa did not survive the team's victory celebrations unscathed


The chief of Germany's football association (DFB) has revealed that one of the team's triumphant players has damaged their World Cup trophy.

Joachim Low's men defeated Argentina 1-0 in the final after extra-time to win the inter-continental tournament for the fourth time in their history, following on from 1954, 1974 and 1990 victories.

The Mannschaft were welcomed home from Brazil to jubilant scenes and toured Berlin with the trophy during midweek, however, they may have celebrated a little bit too hard as their World Cup trophy has been damaged by an unknown member of the Germany team.

"At one point, a small piece of our World Cup trophy was chipped off," DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach is quoted byDie Weltas saying. "But do not worry! We have specialists on the case who can fix it.

"We have investigated persistently who it was that damaged the trophy, but the investigation was concluded without a result."

Luckily for Germany, the cup they have been given by Fifa is just a replica of the World Cup trophy they were presented with at the Maracana on July 13, which is estimated to be worth over €10 million.

Fifa - it would seem wisely - tends not to trust football associations with the trophy after the original World Cup award, the Jules Rimet trophy, had a history of being a target for thieves before being stolen for good in 1983 from Brazil.
