Soccer Mania


The German ‘football’ team came to Istanbul on Friday night for the Germany-Turkey for a European Championship qualifying match. Unfortunately, Turkey lost (the final score was 3-1), however the entire city united to watch the game. People were dressed in red and white from head to toe. The metro and city center were overflowing with fans on their way to watch the game. Whether they were going to the stadium itself, or simply their favorite bar, they were in full uniform to support their team. These pictures are from Taksim Square, where I simply happened to be on Friday night.
