Sp perhaps we are all getting excited about nothing after all. Even if England do win it will do nothing to increase the Bang of England gold reserves.

nobody wins the coveted trophy outright as Fifa retains possession between tournaments, awarding a gold-plated replica to each World Cup champion.

Is it still the same one that was stolen and found in a hedge by some dog that time the World cup was held in England?

The dogs name was Pickles I think.

I bet there's a link to it somewhere. No sorry I can`t be bothered to look for it, but I bet someone else can.

That is what a being good forum member is all about, being willing to look for the link that is. Now what did the original trophy look like then. Ant links to that?.
