WWI sculpture on display outside the Britannia Stadium


Stoke fans look at a WWI sculpture on display outside the reception of the Britannia Stadium after the English Premier League soccer match between Stoke City and Chelsea, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1914 Christmas truce during the World War One, in Stoke on Trent, England, Monday, Dec. 22, 2014. The ceremony marks the Christmas Day truce 100 years ago when rival WWI troops stopped fighting, left the trenches and are said to have played football instead. The 8-feet clay sculpture, by artist Andy Edwards from Stoke, titled All Together Now, shows two soldiers, one British, the other German, greeting each other at their side with a football.
