Germany v Italy, 4 July 2006, Stadium Dortmund: Pure Emotion
There has been an eerie silence in Germany since the match last night – the whole country appears to be completely deflated after losing to Italy in the final minutes. There was quite a bit of confusion amongst some photographers towards the end of the game as it changed so quickly – many didn’t even realise there had been a second goal! I was positioned behind the goal post during the match so didn’t capture the action shots I’d hoped for, but this one definitely shows all the emotion – no matter which angle you look at it from!
