While testing the new Sony A7S fullframe mirrorless camera in Brazil, I also had a chance to try out the Sony a77 II (Order from Amazon | B&H Photo) with the Sony SAL 70-400mm F4-5.6 G II Lens (Order from Amazon | B&H Photo) using the camera’s Lock-on Expanded Flexible Spot Auto Focus at the USA-vs-Ghana World Cup match.
I shot this photo the moment when USA Forward Jozy Altidore pulled his hamstring – and Team USA lost their main offensive weapon.

Memory Cards: Sony 32GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 Cards (Amazon | B&H Photo)
Software: Adobe Lightroom 5 (Amazon | B&H Photo)
Even though I was shooting RAW, the Sony A77II never hit the buffer or slowed down as I captured this sequence showing Jozy Altidore grabbing his hamstring and falling to the field in pain after tearing his hamstring in Team USA’s opening round World Cup match against Ghana.
