Women's World Cup trophy presentation a mystery since Sepp Blatter never showed

I know, going to jail sounds scary to me too.

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

FIFA president Sepp Blatter and secretary general Jerome Valcke aren't at the Women's World Cup final. Partially because they have a lot of work to do in cleaning up FIFA, but also partially because they're scared of getting arrested. The fact that they're not terribly bothered about women's football doesn't help either.

With all of them absent, who will present the trophy to the winner of the final between the United States and Japan? Your guess is as good as ours. FIFA doesn't even know the answer to that question.

Idea: Abby Wambach or Homare Sawa walks around to the other side of the trophy and pretends to be a FIFA executive, at which point they present it to a teammate and golf clap.
