Once again Mike took spectacular photos of the action on and off the field. But yesterday, while posting from a pub wth spotty wi-fi at best and a dying laptop battery (thanks Matt for putting up yesterday's post!) I couldn't add them in. So here are a few of his best.
These next two photos show exactly how much teams love this event. Both Argentinians and French lost but both went around the stadium and showed their appreciation to the fans.
The Argentinians lifted a performer onto their shoulders while he was trying to win an "idol" competition. While the French did their own crowd-surfing twice through the team and each time with the surfer dancing or generally involving the crowd. Including the guy who lost his shorts.
