Fuleco is the 13th official FIFA World Cup™ mascot and maintains a journey that began way back in 1966 with World Cup Willie.

In between the English lion and Brazil 2014’s three-banded armadillo, there have been all manner of creatures and creations.

From an orange (Naranjito, Spain 1982) through a jalapeno pepper (Pique, Mexico 1986) to, most recently, a leopard (Zakumi, South Africa 2010), these mascots have proved consistently popular - and everyone has a favourite.
