The best pets in the World Cups
Source:listas.20minutos.es
Each Soccer World Cup has its own pet from 1966. The first mascot was the World Cup Willie of the 1966 Soccer World Cup held in England. It was also one of the first pets associated with an important sporting event. The design of the pet generally represents characteristics of the host country (customs, clothing, flora, fauna, etc.). The World Cup soccer mascots are focused on children, with television shows and merchandising.
