Photos: World Cup Trophy Replicas From Around the World

Many soccer enthusiasts around the world sport the jerseys of their favorite World Cup teams, but only the most committed fans own a replica of the tournament’s grand prize: the FIFA World Cup Trophy.

The coveted statue, which depicts two people holding up the Earth, is 36.8 centimeters high and weighs 6.1 kilograms.
