It will probably never amount to more than a comfort prize, but this mushroom may be the closest thing nature has to the World Cup trophy.
The mushroom, which looks exactly like the coveted football prize, was found growing in a valley in Liguria, Italy.
The fungi, an inedible Strap Coral mushroom was found by Claudio Pia, as he was taking a stroll near his home.
It was not until the 47-year-old shopkeeper saw a picture of the FIFA trophy that he remembered his strange find and its uncanny resemblance to the prize.
Claudio, who will be supporting Italy in the tournament this summer, said: ‘I was wandering through the woodland looking for tiny mushrooms to take some macro shots when I came across it.
