Soccer celebrations are always so passionate, especially when the goal that's being celebrated is a game winner.

Wednesday, Croatia celebrated like crazy in extra time following Mario Mandzukic's goal to send them to the World Cup Final.  Caught in the middle of the wild on-field celebration after the goal, though, was a photographer.

If you're a sports photographer, you won't get much closer to the action than this guy did. You also won't be in as much pain as this guy was probably in after being jumped on by the Croatian players.
