This wonderful piece of public #art in #WestAuckland, #CountyDurham, #England commemorates the #culture and #heritage of the town, as being the winners of the first ever #football #WorldCup final in 1909, where they beat FC Winterthur from Switzerland 2-0. The #statue features a coal #miner in #goalie pose noting the areas mining history, and that the winning football team was made up of coal miners who took unpaid time off of work to play. #sculpture #history #soccer #sport #fact #travel #tourism #tourist #leisure #life
