International pictures show the spectacle from all walks of life

The World Cup promises to bring great football, but the spread of photojournalists working internationally also bring us great pictures. The Boston Big Picture has a superb selection of images portraying the beautiful game from all walks of life – young and old, rich and poor, near and far; from prisoners watching the opening match in jail or Chinese stall holders watching on a small TV to the grand scale of Hamburg’s outdoor screen; even a bunch of photographers being herded onto the pitch like a gaggle of geese (my personal favourite). Whether a footie fan, or only keen on supporting your country during the Cup, this selection of images looks both inside and out of the box. Top class.
