France v Korea, 18 June 2006, Leipzig, Zentralstadion: The Face Says It All
An image showing facial emotion can make interesting viewing and this picture is no different (being as footballers particularly like part-taking in a spot of amateur dramatics!). I could see this tackle coming as I was standing near the goal, so it was great to capture this action shot. The game was quite a tense one for France, so it really sums up the match.
This image shows Eul Yong Lee of Korea Republic being tackled by Patrick Vieira of France and is around one of around 40 that usually makes the grade from around 200-300 shots taken, in response to Marco’s question.
