They got the fundamentals of photojournalism wrong.Look at the caption for photo.It reads: ''World Youth Cup Football Tournament 29 June 1997".Inaccurate.
In the 'About This photograph' section, it reads:"This is a photograph taken during a key point in a match in the quarter finals of the championship between Brazil and France."

A simple check reveals that the tournament was called the FIFA Youth Championship.Brazil played France on June 17, 1997, in the group stages.Brazil played Argentina on 29 June, 1997, in the Q-finals.
There was no encounter between Brazil and France during the quater final stages of the championship.

They got their captioning wrong.Totally wrong, inaccurate information.And I think before they go and educate people about photojournalism, they should get their basics right first.That is, providing the audience wih accurate information.

*I dont think this article is by ST as TS has mentioned.
