Midges annoy players from England and Tunisia in Volgograd

VOLGOGRAD, Russia (AP) Little bugs were a big annoyance at the World Cup on Monday.

During England's 2-1 victory over Tunisia, midges descended on the Volgograd Arena. Players from both sides, but particularly those from England, spent an undue amount of time trying to ward them off during the match.

In Volgograd at this time of the year, midges are not uncommon. Set on the banks of the mighty Volga River, the seasonal change in weather unleashes millions of the little bugs.
