Impressive World Cup Street Art In East London Vandalised By Anti-FIFA Protestors (Photos)

Full wall low res

Having been commissioned by Betfair to liven up the streets of east London, Brazilian street artist Cranio – famous in his native land for his blue indigenous figures – recently daubed a series of impressive World Cup-themed scenes on a vacant wall, depicting Neymar’s first goal at the tournament, Robin van Persie’s corking diving header against Spain and Guillermo Ochoa’s heroic none-shall-pass shift against Brazil…

The plan was to leave a fourth space free and have fans vote to decide which tournament-defining scene they wanted Cranio to immortalise come the end of the World Cup.

However those plans are now on hold after all of Cranio’s work was vandalised by anti-FIFA protestors yesterday, who crept up in the dead of night and sprayed “CORRUPT BLATTER” across the length and breadth of the whole thing…

See, this is why we can never have nice things.
