Anxious Chile supporters knocked down barriers and stormed the media center at Maracana Stadium in an attempt to get to their seats in time for kickoff against Spain. It’s unclear how the chaos started, but it definitely escalated quickly.
FUTBOL! WE’RE GOING TO WATCH THE FUTBOL!! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
After security was breached, many fans without tickets stormed in, destroying several television monitors and acting like bulls in a china shop. C’mon, Chile fans, did you learn nothing from the Japanese? Tsk. Tsk.
