Photographer from the World Cup is Allowed to Travel in Croatia. Yuri Cortez, the press photographer who was overwhelmed by cheering Croatian players during the semifinals of the World Cup in Russia, will soon be able to spend a week on holiday in the country of the losing finalist.
“Just bring your good mood and camera with you”, the Croatian tourist office said.
“We talked for a few minutes,” explains the 53-year-old man from El Salvador. “He invited me to discover the country, with its beauty and gastronomy. I have to let you know when I want to come and where I want to go. “
When the Croatians scored the winning goal in the semifinals of the World Championships against England, they applied together around Cortez.
The joy with Mario Mandzukic and co was so great that in their enthusiasm they fell and the photographer dragged along. In the meantime, he proceeded to do his work, which resulted in some impressive pictures of frenzied players.
