Just 2 day’s after the game Switzerland-Cyprus. There was a friendly game organized between the teams of Portugal and Croatia. I was very tired from the previous events, had a giant backlog of Pictures to sort, process and deliver. However it was impossible to pass up the chance to see Christiano Ronaldo play. In what had turned into a habit it was raining again. The terrible weather was unfortunate since many people decided to stay home. It was still a great evening at the Stadium
My favorite of the fans
Of the game
The wider selection of the crowd
The wide selection of the game action
Photographers in action (enjoying the refreshing drizzle), on the other side of the field a photographer was injured by a firecracker not very funny.
For the Game I had my 2 A99 with the trusted 70-400 and 70-200 except for the game start where I was in the media stand taking the wide angle shots with : my Sigma 15mm the Minolta 17-35 and the Zeiss 24-70 too bad that may of the seats where empty. Bot cameras spent some time in the rain. When I got the lenscoat for the 2nd half it stopped raining and we actually had some sunshine. It was the first game I saw another Sony photographer around the field
