Africa poised to behold world cup trophy as it tours the world

Football greats Ricardo Kaka and Iker Casillas have begun touring the world with the original FIFA World Cup trophy.


The global journey kicked off in Dubai on Thursday, May 12 and will have the two soccer icons visit all the remaining 31 countries that have qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be staged in Qatar in November this year.


“The FIFA World Cup Trophy is one of the greatest symbols in sport…Bringing it on tour gives us a unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on the fantastic communities around the world who love the beautiful game,” Romy Gai, FIFA’s Chief Business officer said.


Kaka won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, while Casillas was part of the star-studded Spain side that conquered the world in 2010.
