Posted on

The World cup is on its way and here at Molly's we want you and your family to enjoy the football tournament and have lots of yummy sweets to snack on in front of the big screen. Here are our top 10 facts about the FIFA World cup. 1 — every match at the inaugural 1930 World Cup in Uruguay was played in one city: Montevideo. 2 — Sweden's Jan Olsson, wearing No. 2, was the defender that Dutch star Johan Cruyff famously bamboozled with his inventive "Cruyff Turn" at the 1974 World Cup in West Germany. 3 — Brazil's Pele is the only player to win three World Cups: in 1958, 1962 and 1970. 4 — the number of players who recorded two hat tricks at the World Cup: Hungary's Sandor Kocsis (both in 1954), France's Just Fontaine (1958), West Germany's Gerd Muller (1970) and Gabriel Batistuta (one in 1994 and one in 1998). 5 — Russia's Oleg Salenko scored a tournament-record five goals in one game during a 6-1 win over Cameroon at the 1994 World Cup in the United States. 6 — Paolo Rossi was the top scorer at the 1982 World Cup in Spain with six goals, leading Italy to its third title. 7 — the number of days the World Cup trophy went missing when it was stolen prior to the 1966 Cup in England. A dog named Pickles, being taken out for a walk by his owner in South London, discovered the trophy wrapped in some newspapers at the bottom of some bushes a week after it was taken. 8 — Scotland has qualified for the World Cup on eight occasions. All eight times it failed to advance beyond the first round. 9 — Mexico lost a record nine straight games at the World Cup (1930, 1950-58). 10 — the number of minutes left in extra time of the 2006 World Cup final when France's Zinedine Zidane head-butted Italian defender Marco Materazzi.
