English fans’ priceless posterComment on this story
Belo Horizonte, Brazil -Some sarcastic England fans had their 15 seconds of fame during Tuesday's Group D finale against Costa Rica.
They held up a sign listing the various costs of the trip to Brazil: 1,200 pounds for the flight, 2,000 pounds for “enjoying the ambiance,” 2,000 pounds for accommodation. The punchline? “Arriving after elimination - priceless.”
FIFA officials probably weren't as amused as all the folks who retweeted an image of the sign, which plays off MasterCard's signature ad campaign. The tournament credit card sponsor is Visa.
