Italian team Fiorentina gets huge trophy for preseason friendly win
Italian soccer club ACF Fiorentina and Spanish team Málaga CF squared off in a simple pre-season tune-up match, but the winning side was handed a trophy that does not quite match up to the stakes.

The hardware is called the Costa del Sol Unesco Trophy and it puts the all the sport's other awards like the prestigious FA Cup, and the Champions League trophy to shame.
Everyone likes getting a trophy, but maybe ones for exhibition games should be a little less substantial.
