Morris Nwosu, a Nigeria football fan reacts in relief after their Africa Cup of Nations 2019 (Afcon) match against Cameroon, at a bar in Kuchingoro, Abuja, Nigeria July 6, 2019. He said: "Nigeria's victory today will boost its Image around the world, before now, you all know that Cameroon has been our problem in terms of African football; it is either they win, terminate or stop us in major competitions. But I thank God that today we beat them. Football affects my community in so, so many ways. Football is a like a binding factor, not only in my community but in Nigeria as a whole, as you can see here in this place now, we all came from different tribes but once it's football we all come together, watch the game together, we jubilate together and would still have mourn together if we have lost the match today." International football can bring unimaginable joy to people from all walks of life but can also leave them distraught beyond comprehension, and that range of emotions reaches maximum exposure at the moment the ball hits the net and dreams are realized or shattered." Reuters photographers across the continent have captured those reactions in a series of telling images during the Africa Cup of Nations, which reaches its pinnacle when Algeria and Senegal meet in the final on Friday.
