The FIFA World Cup between the intelligence of a dog and an official’s assertion: “This would not have happened in Brazil”!

The FIFA World Cup between the intelligence of a dog and the confirmation of an official:
Brazil lost the Golden Football World Cup, which was permanently transferred to it after it won it for the third time in 1970, and that was on December 19, 1983.

The fate of this cup, made of 3.8 kilograms of gilded silver and designed in the form of the Greek goddess of victory, Nikki, 40 years after its theft, remains completely unknown.

The FIFA World Cup was stolen from Brazil when four people infiltrated the Brazilian Football Confederation building and were able to overpower a lone goalkeeper in the place and escape with the golden spoils!

The security authorities discovered the perpetrators four years later, and it turned out that the thieves were Jose Luis da Silva, the artist specializing in decoration, a former policeman named Jose Racha, and the jewelry merchant Joao Carlos Hernandez. The leader of the gang, named Sergio Pereira, was later arrested.

The four thieves remained silent and refused to reveal the fate of the “Golden Cup”, which was known as “Jules Rimet”, the Frenchman who led FIFA between 1921 and 1954, while stories spread that said that the cup was melted down or that it was sold to an antique collector. Thus, the Brazilians had no other way out than making a second copy so that the cup would not remain empty!

This was not the first time the World Cup had been stolen. Such a thing happened in 1966 in Britain, three months before the start of the World Cup in England, which the British team won.

The FIFA World Cup was presented to the people at that time in Westminster Abbey, and it was under heavy security, but a thief took advantage of the Sunday holiday, entered the monastery through the back door, reached the cup and carried it with him to an unknown destination!

The unknown thief contacted the authorities and demanded a ransom of 15 thousand pounds sterling. Investigations continued and did not lead to anything for days.

A week later, while the dog "Pickles" was walking in a park in south London with his owner, he decided to place his usual mark on a tree in the place, and as soon as he finished, he was busy actively digging the ground. His owner reached him and found that his dog had uncovered a body wrapped in newspaper. The object turned out to be the missing FIFA World Cup, thanks to which the man received a handsome financial reward and the dog was given a medal.

At that time, Abren Tepeta, a member of the Brazilian Football Confederation, declared confidently and in a condemning tone, saying: “Even Brazilian thieves love football and will never trespass on the sacred! Such a thing would not happen in Brazil!”

The third notable incident took place in Italy after its national team won the FIFA World Cup in its old version in 1938 for the second time, before it was called the French sports leader.

After the outbreak of World War II, the President of the Italian Football Federation, Ottorino Barassi, greatly feared for the fate of the cup, so he went to the basement where it was hidden and carried it with him to his home, hid it in a box and placed it under his bed.



The Russian Football Federation resolves its position on joining the Asian Confederation

The Executive Committee of the Russian Football Union voted unanimously against the decision to move to the Asian Football Confederation, and decided to continue communicating with its European counterpart, UEFA.
Executive Committee member Mikhail Gershkovich told RIA Novosti that the Russian Federation will remain within the European Football Association (UEFA).

“The issue was discussed, and they voted unanimously against it, because there are no guarantees from FIFA,” Gershkovic said.

Mikhail Gershkovich indicated that the Russian Football Federation decided to continue contacts with its European counterpart, UEFA, saying: “There is progress. Let us see how the situation will develop in 2024.”

It is noteworthy that the International Federation (FIFA) and the European Football Association (UEFA) decided to suspend the participation of Russian teams in competitions indefinitely due to the events in Ukraine.
