Lincoln lift the World Cup.

FOOTBALL'SWorld Cup is stopping off at just one ground in Britain on its way around the globe ahead of the finals in South Africa in June.

The trophy, which is on a 225-day, 86,300-mile tour, visiting 83 countries, will be on display at the unlikely location of Sincil Bank, Lincoln, a week today.

Then Imps fans will be able to see it paraded before the League Two match with Hereford before it heads off into Europe.

Officials at Lincoln promise a "once in a lifetime" experience, and it looks set to be the only trophy the long-suffering League Two side's supporters will see this season.
