FIFA World Cup trophy was stolen in Brazil in 1983 and still have no idea where it is!
Brazil is the most successful team in football. It has won the World Cup five times. However, it is also associated with a football story that it would like to forget. The story is of 19 December 1983. On this day the Jules Rimé Trophy (then known as the FIFA World Cup trophy by the same name) was stolen in Rio de Janeiro, the capital of Brazil.
The trophy was placed in a bulletproof glass show case at the headquarters of the Brazilian Football Association. However, its back was wooden. The thieves broke the back with a hammer and stole the trophy. The stolen trophy was not found even after more than three decades.
However, this was not the first time that the Football World Cup trophy was stolen. In 1966, the trophy was stolen from Westminster Hall in central London. However, seven days later a dog named Pixel found it in a house Gordon where this trophy was lying under a newspaper.
The last world cup (2018 FIFA World Cup) was won by France. The next world cup (2022 FWC) will be held in Qatar with 32 teams against each other.
