On Monday afternoon, Mexico was able to advance to the elimination stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a big win over Croatia thanks to a late burst from their offense.
After Mexico scored their first goal of the game off of the head of team captain Rafael Marquez, who earned Man of the Match honors, there were fans in the crowd that decided to let their passion show through their fists.
We have always known that soccer fans were among the most intense and passionate in the world, so it was only a matter of time until we saw a video of a fight in the crowd surface from Brazil.
Thanks to some El Tri fans and shirtless Croatians, we got just that.

The Croatian fans were probably unhappy with the beginning of the end for their team in the tournament, so they turned around to see some very happy El Tri fans.
That likely rubbed them the wrong way, so some very sloppy looping punches were exchanged until security came to the rescue.
If there are any takeaways from the video, it is the fact that Croatian’s don’t seem to like shirts and the security guards in Brazil are completely bad ass.
