Chile is playing Spain at the Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro in a huge Group B match up. After Chile won their opening game against Australia, and the Spain were routed by the Netherlands, it put a lot more significance on this game.
A Spain loss could have ruled them out of the tournament and could have guaranteed the Chileans a spot in the round of 16. Once the Netherlands defeated Australia earlier on Wednesday, it made those possibilities certainties.
Some Chilean fans in Brazil for the tournament didn’t have tickets to the game, but were determined to get inside. During half time of the game ESPN and Bob Ley filled us in on what happened before the game. Around a 100 fans in Chilean jerseys and gear rushed an entrance that had only one security guard.
The guard said there should be 20 guards there, but there was only one.
The fans even broke down walls in an effort to get into the stadium. Eventually security got the situation under control and removed the fans.
