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.
That photographer at the bottom of the Croatia pile is gonna have some unreal pics.— Ian Mendes (@ian_mendes) July 11, 2018
You have to say those Croatian lads were very polite to that photographer.— Jim Smallman (@jimsmallman) July 11, 2018
Well sadly that photographer that Mandzukic landed on didn’t get a picture. #CROENG— Aysha Ridzuan (@ayshardzn) July 11, 2018
That poor photographer that got buried in the #CRO dogpile! 😂 The players checked on him and one even kissed him on the forehead, God bless. I'm a Croatia fan now! 😂😂— Anne (@cheekybackheel) July 11, 2018
I’ve never wanted to read anything more than an interview with that photographer who ended up at the bottom of the Croatia scrum. (Want to see the photos he snapped too.)— Jody Avirgan (@jodyavirgan) July 11, 2018
Peter Drury is on another level!! The Croatian players piled on top of the photographer in celebration and he said "in a flash, the whole picture's changed"— HU. (@HuACM) July 11, 2018
Best part of that goal celly is how that Croats started kissing and hugging the poor photographer they trampled.— Isabelle Khurshudyan (@ikhurshudyan) July 11, 2018
Forget the overtime goal from Croatia. Let’s talk about this photographer who is half buried and still firing shots off. A true hero. pic.twitter.com/7leZbeAPkn— sam (@emmettsam8) July 11, 2018
The Croatian players celebrating that goal, crashing into the photographers area, and then apologizing to the camera man and giving him a kiss on the head is the best moment of this World Cup.— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) July 11, 2018
Shout-out to that photographer who was accidentally a part of that Croatia celebration. The true hero of the #WorldCup— Cesar Hernandez (@cesarhfutbol) July 11, 2018
