Photo Daily | November 27 | World Cup 2006: Celebration in Paris
In the second of our photo series this week on the 2006 World Cup, here’s the unpleasant side of “celebration” from the night France beat Brazil 1-0 in the quarter finals.
Paris took to the streets to celebrate, invading the whole Champs-Elysées. Unfortunately, things turned nasty: clashes erupted between some “casseurs” (trouble-makers) and riot police near the Place de l’Etoile, with a car eventually burnt down rue de Presbourg (in front of the Drugstore).
Here, you see one of the “casseurs” in front of the burning car (seen from the Champs-Elysées side of the street).
