Sports picture of the day

February 12, 2009


We’re back with another picture of the day, and this time Sports Pictures Editor Greg Bos has chosen a frame from the Copa Libertadores, South American soccer’s version of the Champions League. Greg writes:

I like this picture because of its colour and shape – a simple, but eye-catching, illustration of football fans in Argentina sandwiched between two giant colourful flags.

Yes, nice pic but…, why was the name of the photographer taken out?

lionreport and Ricardo — many apologies. It was an editing error on my part. Marcos Brindicci took the pic and I’ve amended the caption to give him due credit.

Consider my wrists slapped.
