British photographer Dean Dorat took the photos during the 2006 World Cup, when he divided his time between London and Paris, going from pubs to bars, trying to catch the essence of each football match through people's expressions.

Dean Dorat said :"Each spectator was so intensely absorbed in the matches that they forget about the camera pointing at them. These photographs draw us into the emotions of the moment, may it be the overwhelming euphoria of victory or the emptiness of defeat."
