If the saying is true that a Barbadian can be found everywhere, then you need to look no farther than this Associated Press picture taken at the FIFA World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa, yesterday.While hundreds of Brazil supporters held giant replicas of the World Cup trophy and celebrated their team’s 3-0 victory over Chile to reach the quarter-finals, there was a Broken Trident fluttering proudly in the background.Many football fans in Barbados are backing the Seleçao, as they are fondly known, but one fan went hundreds of miles across the globe to support the five-time world champions. Please see also Pages 22 to 24.
