    A Dance With The Devils


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     zkoulerm says hundreds of fans piled into Belgium's Sportpaleis, a large arena in the city of Antwerp, to watch the Belgium team play Algeria in the World Cup on June 17. The atmosphere was subdued, he remembers, as Algeria scored the first goal. But joy was restored near the end of the match when Belgium scored against Algeria. Belgium came out of that match scoring 2 to 1. 'I'm an American living in Belgium and I've been swept up in the excitement of watching the Belgian national team play,' he said. 'With Spain falling so quickly, anything can happen.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Passionate Belgians fans gathered in the Sportpaleis Arena in Antwerp, Belgium to watch the Belgian national football team play in the World Cup. The event was called “Dance with the Devils”. The Belgian team played Algeria for its first match. The action was slow in the first half of the game, but once the first Belgian goal was scored, the energy picked up. Towards the end of the match, Dries Mertens scored in the 80th minute, and the arena exploded with cheers. This picture is of the celebration at the end of the game where the crowd danced to Netsky’s techno music set.
