XtraTime Web Desk: Argentinean police arrested a drug smuggling gang after they found out that cocaine and marijuana hidden inside the replica of the World Cup trophies.

Six persons were arrested during the the raids at  Isidro Casanova in La Matanza Partido, Greater Buenos Aires.

Officers found 1.5kg of cocaine and marijuana hidden inside the gongs. In addition, police seized two vehicles and two guns during the bust, Clarin reported.

The gang took advantage of the merchandising boom of the World Cup to pedal the drugs around different neighborhoods of La Matanza.

This morning, the Buenos Aires security minister, Cristian Ritondo, said: 'The drug convictions must be strictly complied with, they do not go out of business, those who are imprisoned have to be imprisoned and serve their sentence.

'It is important that they be imprisoned, that they not return to the business.'

Argentinian fans will still be hurting after the 2014 World Cup runners up suffered a heavy defeat last night.

Argentina looked destined to exit the World Cup at the group stage for the first time since 2002 after their embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Croatia.

However, Nigeria's 2-0 victory over Iceland has blown Group D wide open, and keeps the World Cup dreams alive for Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and their team-mates.
