Munich: DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach has confessed that the cup given to them this summer by Fifa did not survive the team's victory celebrations unscathed
The chief of Germany's football association (DFB) has revealed that one of the team's triumphant players has damaged their World Cup trophy.
The Mannschaft were welcomed home from Brazil to jubilant scenes, however, they may have celebrated a little bit too hard as their World Cup trophy has been damaged by an unknown member of the Germany team.
"At one point, a small piece of our World Cup trophy was chipped off," DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach is quoted by Die Welt as saying.
"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."
