What dies a “thief” have to do with football

Hi NeverWowMosquito,

The winners of this football competition win a trophy. This very valuable trophy is the 'World Cup' . Some thieves stole the trophy in England in 1966. But luckily a dog found it!


I hope that helps.

Best wishes,

When I watched football cup I supported "JUVENTUS" because I like goalkeeper Buffon who plays in this team.
