German Paper's Front Page Gets World Cup Fever with Brilliant Scrabble Tiles

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 12, 2014

The Berliner Morgenpost will hit shops in the German capital tomorrow on the morning of the 2014 World Cup final with a brilliant Scrabble-themed front page.

There are no hype pictures of the players, no image of the World Cup trophy—just Scrabble tiles.

But with the players' names written horizontally on a grass backdrop, the tiles downwards spell "Weltmeister"—"World Champion."

There are some other lovely touches as well. Each tile's points value is the squad number of the player in question.
