No section given[edit]

i recently created the fifa page, not realising that one existed, it has been merged now--Happyhaydn 21:26, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Striker was the best ever. I miss him so much. Kicks Willie's arse anyday.

Yeah! Striker is the coolest mascot ever!El Chompiras 20:03, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

France '98 Footix[edit]

Does anyone else (probably only Americans) think Footix bears a very strong resemblance to the KU Jayhawk? Xyzzyva 21:18, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Does anyone else think that the japs that created those...things were on crack?

lol I agree! Footix is a ripoff to Jayhawk, and the mascots of 2002 are crappy! It should had been some japanese schoolgirl mangafied wearing Japan's jersey! El Chompiras 20:03, 28 June 2006 (UTC)


I guess it isn't entirely accurate to name the 2006 mascots Goleo and Pille as equals as stated in the article. The actual mascot is Goleo; Pille is the "sidekick" as best. --EnemyOfTheState 00:56, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

I guess you're right. I hope it's clearer now. --Gabbec 02:02, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
I think Pille should be in it as well. El Chompiras 20:58, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
Pille was already noted as a sidekick; I don't think I've seen any official FIFA statement calling it a "mascot", but please point one out if you have. Thanks, --Gabbec 02:14, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

2010 mascot[edit]

when will the mascot be released —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 15:36, 18 January 2007 (UTC).

Argentina 1978[edit]

Listed here as Mundialito - I thought it was Gauchito - anyone confirm or deny.--Vintagekits (talk) 12:33, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Mundialito redirection[edit]

Mundialito redirects to this page, maybe because the wrong name of the 78 mascot, that was already corrected. It should redirect to 1980 Mundialito, the tournament held in Uruguay. Rsnetto74 (talk) 02:04, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Images for 1982 and 1986[edit]

Images for Naranjito and Pique are available at a History page for the 2002 WC.


The quality isn't great though. :(

Much better images at and
