The World Cup trophy has been damaged by Germany’s players after their 1-0 win over Argentina last week.
Wolfgang Niersbach, DFB president revealed that a piece of the expensive prize “was chipped off” during aftermath celebrations in Berlin.Being that it is their fourth World Cup win, following the others in 1954, 1974 and 1990, they were understandably excited.
The players received a jubilant welcome when they arrived home but it was said that the excitement got out of hand.
“At one point, a small piece of our World Cup trophy was chipped off,” Niersbach admitted. “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.”
The worth of the trophy? – an estimated worth of over 10 million euros .But the twist is that the damaged one was only an imitation from FIFA, to the team.
