Mascot & Ball
A naked wooden lad with a ball and a paper hat. And a large stripey nose.
Enormous-footed rooster in a French football kit. With a ball.
Tough looking rabbit with dodgy euro-rock headband and even dodgier ball control.
The most cunningly named of all the mascots. Slightly better ball control than Berni but equally bad head gear.
Slightly boss-eyed lion in excruciatingly tight shorts. With a ball.
Strange demon-lion thing. With a ball.
A Portuguese kid. With enormous, fat hands. But only 4 fingers.
“Trix and Flix”
Fun-loving Austro-Swiss mates. With no ball.
A kid in an Argentina shirt. With a ball.
Cute duck in a random football kit. With a ball.
Looks a bit like Roger Mellie (from Viz) in a Chile kit. With a ball.
Our favourite. A sweetcorn in an Ecuador kit. With a ball.
A bull in a Uruguay kit. With a ball.
It’s obviously an armadillo in a Bolivia kit. With a ball.
The Paraguayans step it up a gear in 1999, with a Chacoan Peccary in the colours of Paraguay’s flag, rather than its football kit. The cheeky young scamp is having a drink and giving us a wave. Oh yes, and it has the compulsory ball.
Appears to be a Pokemon character. Booting a rather flat ball.
This is more like it. An ancient Inca of Peru, doing keepy-uppys down the wing.
A macaw dressed in the colours of La Vinotinto. And guess what he has under his wing ?
