In this May 11, 2014 photo, soccer fans take a selfie during the Brazilian league soccer match between Fluminense and Flamengo, at the Maracana stadium, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Ecstatic football fans unable to celebrate a World Cup win with real-time Tweets, or post “selfies” of themselves from inside stadiums.
