Argentina fans 'invade' Brasilia for WC quarter-finals clash

Fans of Argentina play music in a camping area in Brasilia.

And they did it again. Argentina fans have flocked the city of Brasilia to support coach Alejandro Sabella’s squad today at the Mané Garrincha stadium where the twice champions will take on in-form Belgium in the World Cup quarter-finals.

It is estimated that 60,000 Argentineans have arrived in that Brazilian city, many of them falling into the hands of touts to get tickets. In northern Brasilia, fans will have access to a special area with showers, drinking water and a giant screen to watch Argentina’s clash against Belgium.

Meanwhile, Brazil authorities have deployed a special security operation with 3,488 police officers watching over the surroundings of the stadium. Airport surveillance has also been ramped up to prevent the entry of hooligans.
