Haiti’s Brazil fans turned out in full force for World Cup


Despite the ongoing violence in Port-au-Prince, scores of Brazil fans gathered in different spots in the capital to watch their team’s opening game in the 2022 World Cup against Serbia on Nov. 24. Supporters went home celebrating after Brazil won the match 2-0. All pictures were taken at Place Boyer and Rue Panaméricaine, both in Pétion-Ville, Port-au-Prince, by Marvens Compere for The Haitian Times.
