How would you feel if you are caught under a pile of football players celebrating wildly after a winning goal?
Mexico-based Yuri Cortez, is perhaps, the best person to answer that question.
Cortez, a chief photographer of AFP inadvertently became part of the celebration by Croatian players after their second goal against England in the 109th minute during the semi-final clash at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.
As the Croatian team celebrated the winning goal, they were near the sidelines where there was no barrier between the field and the photographers covering the game.
As a result they all crashed into the photographers. While most of the photographers managed to get out of the way in time, Cortez alone got stuck under the pile.
When some of players realized it, they helped Cortez to his feet and ensured he was okay.
AFP posted a few of photographs of this incident on social media and the photographer seems to be fine!
