Fans invade first Maracana game in 64 years

15 Jun, 2014

A group of about 20 fans invade the Maracana ahead of the Argentina-Bosnia game, the first World Cup match to be held at the stadium since the 1950 final between Brazil and Uruguay. Military police estimate around 2,000 Argentina fans are outside the stadium, where scalpers are selling tickets for around $670. Private security guards fail to prevent intruders entering the stadium after pushing and shoving breaks out.
