Bored Fan Falls Asleep During Belgium vs. Russia at the World Cup

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalJune 22, 2014

Belgium and Russia came together on Sunday at the Maracana for what promised to be a cracking festival of entertaining football at the World Cup.

It didn't quite work out that way.

This picture was captured around the 70th-minute mark, as a fan fell asleep in the stands.

There was excitement to come, however, as Divock Origi produced a late winner for Belgium after fine work from Eden Hazard.

It's unclear whether the fan above was awake to see this goal.
