Germany players damage World Cup trophy

IT was Sergio Ramos who dropped the Coppa del Rey while celebrating Real Madrid’s victory in the Spanish cup. A bus then drove over the trophy. Germany have managed something even more embarrassing.

When triumphant Germany returned home with the World Cup trophy, wild celebrations ensued in Berlin, complete with a dramatic unveiling of Philipp Lahm holding the prize aloft.
