Berlin, Germany (4E Sports) – A replica of the World Cup trophy was damaged by Germany’s players amid wild celebrations in Berlin after their finals win over Argentina at the Maracana last week.
The president of Germany’s football association (DFB) Wolfgang Niersbach said a piece of the trophy “was chipped off”.
“We have investigated persistently who it was that damaged the trophy, but the investigation was concluded without a result,” said Niersbach.
The replica was presented to the German team at the Maracana on July 13.
The official trophy, which was not entrusted to them, is estimated to be worth over 10 million euros.
It was Germany’s fourth World Cup success following wins in 1954, 1974 and 1990.
