The final was a tense affair between South America's long-time poo picking-up champions, Argentina, and the efficient might of the Hun.
After 90 minutes of poo picking-up around the streets of Wivenhoe it was still a stalemate, with neither team able to stick the bag of poop into the back of the bin – and Argentina's champion picker-upper Lionel Dog-Messi missing two open bins.
In the end it was in extra time that German Joachim Scheiss finally managed to swerve his way around two Argentinian defenders to snatch up a last minute labrador dump and scoop it into a nearby bin to the utter delight of his team mates.
A jubilant Mayor Dame Dannii Minogue presented the Poo Picking-up World Cup to the exultant Germans and later told Daily Mail: "It cost us just over £45 billion to bring the competition here, 83 people lost their lives, 27 have been put in prison and the people of Wivenhoe will feel the ill effects of all this needless spending for years to come, but it's been worth every penny. Look at the kids, they're all grabbing poo bags and heading out onto the streets to be like their idols. There's no doubt about it, Wivenhoe has got poo picking-up fever!"
