During this time every four years, it is not unusual to find football-crazy fans around the world creating their own version of the FIFA World Cup trophy.  But while most would opt for materials such as plastic or paper-mâché, in Columbia they prefer the use of a different substance: cocaine.

Colombian authorities found a 36-centimeter-high gold statue made of 11 kilos of cocaine mixed with acetone (to help mold it together) inside a box headed for Madrid, Spain.

With Spain only two victories away from bringing home the real FIFA World Cup Trophy, they may have been hoping that the Columbian version would also be meeting them in Madrid for their victory celebration.
