Chile face Spain today in a Group B World Cup match and extraordinary scenes played out at the Maracana before the game.  A group of Chilean fans stormed the stadium, apparently hoping to gain entrance to the match and ended up crashing the media center.  Journalists and others at the stadium documented the wild scene.

And finally after a few minutes of chaos it looks like things settled down at the Maracana media center…

Thankfully at the moment it seems like nobody was seriously injured, but this will surely be a wake up call for tournament organizers at the venue that is scheduled to host the World Cup Final.
