FIFA Match Report



Nigeria takes a free kick. You can see the army of photographers behind the goal. Half the photographers got red pinnies, and the other half got blue, to indicate which goal they could be behind. Other than that it was just a free-for-all - after the national anthems finished, the photographers would make a mad dash for their preferred location.


After the game ended and Nigeria had ensured themselves a spot in the second round, the Nigerian president (in the off-white robes) came down from the stands to celebrate with the players and supporters.


The Nigerian fans continued to celebrate long after the game was finished.
