Sleeping mustachioed French fan was too tired for Euro 2012 opener

Zzzzzzzz. (@mahero21)

After scoring in the 30th minute with a Joleon Lescott header off an excellent Steven Gerrard free kick, England managed to hold on for a 1-1 draw. France dominated possession in the second half and seemed almost a lock to score a winner until frustration set in and complacency took over near the end, but that tension was lost on one French fan who decided the 59th minute was the perfect time for a nap.

Yes, traveling to Ukraine can be tiring and it's important to be well rested for the later rounds, but falling asleep at a France match is dangerous. Waking up to find that Franck Ribery has drawn genitalia all over your face is always a very real possibility.
