When Croatia's Mario Mandzukic scored in extra time to put his team up 2-1 over England, AFP photographer Yuri Cortez was in perfect position to capture the ensuing celebration.

Cortez continued to fire off frames even as players piled up around and on top of him, resulting in some incredible close-ups of the unbridled Croatian emotion.
