Passport Check

Before every World Cup Qualifier there's a passport check conducted by the Match Commissioner and a FIFA Official, verifying that you are who you say you are (no Abe Froman's on this team!).

It's pretty much what you'd expect. Names are called. You have to smile. The Match Commissioner marks your name off the list. Nonetheless, the MNT Blog is all about hard hitting journalism so it was natural that we made our way down to the Passport Check with camera in hand. Here are some pictures...Eddie demonstrates the perfect form for the passport check. Hands in pockets. Facing forward. Calm but composed...Frankie had to make a face similar to the silly one on his passport so that the match was easier to make...This one required further inspection from the officials...
