The Tuesday Inspiration: Most enjoyable and strangely addictive!

2012.08.07

Bobby Moore's statue outside the stadium, watching over the fans as they arrive.

A 'we were here' shot just had to be taken to mark the occasion!

One of the pro-photographers setting up a remote control camera behind the goal. By the time the match started there were a dozen or more set up here, ready to catch the goals. The number of long lenses in use by the pros had to be seen to be believed including, I think, some copies of the new Canon 200-400mm lens which hasn't even been officially released yet!

We arrived very early - the empty seats left us in no doubt as to where we were!

Time for the national anthems. The Mexican anthem certainly won the gold medal for being the most hummable - a very catchy little number!

Goal! You can see the ball just about to cross the line as they Mexicans scored their first goal of the match.

Time for a Mexican group hug to celebrate while the Japanese team hold a post mortem of what went wrong!

Annbramwell Oh you are so lucky... we only got to see the Olympic park, no events, but that was still a whole heap of fun... last time I saw Wembley I was with 88 000 people at the U2 360 concert... We are also not sporty folk, but have found ourselves cheering on team GB and team RSA at any and every opportunity over the last 2 weeks... it's great isn't it!

Jarvo Super set - shame about the fixed lens rule, unfortunately it seems to be that way with a lot of sports nowadays.

lukesmom Great set! I felt like I was there with you!
