One Man Dead After Fans Clash At Copa Brazil Match
In yet another tragic ending to a soccer riot, one man was announced dead and several more are likely injured following a Copa Brazil match between Corinthians and Vasco de Gama.
The man was apparently killed during a fight between the two club team’s supporters. If that wasn’t enough, after word spread of the death to one of their fans, Corinthians fans proceeded to attack and burn a bus carrying Vasco de Gama fans.
To think that this all happens in the name of sports is insane. And some people think Philadelphia is a bad place for a visiting team fan to watch a game. Why can’t all fans just stick to the flashing, hotdog shooters off women’s chests, and maybe a flying Bruce Lee kick here and there. That’s what being a sports fan is really all about.
