This story is unbelievable and is sickening to hear. While soccer is a very popular sport in many European countries and around the world, news released today has taken it to another level. Sources say that at least 79 fans are now reported dead, after a soccer game ended in bloodshed today. It is one of the world’s deadliest sports related scenes in decades.
Apparently two rival teams in Said, Egypt caused a huge disruption after the game. Fans rushed to the field and a riot insued. Police authorities reported that supporters of the home team, Al-Masry, swarmed the field after a 3-1 win against Al-Ahly, the country’s leading team.
While it is great to be passionate about sports, this is taking it too far. Violence over the loss of a game, is completely ridiculous and I just cannot relate.
Where do they go from here? Hopefully, they will learn a lesson. Winning or losing a game is not worth a life…and definitely not worth losing dozens of mothers, fathers, sisters, or brothers.
Why would a game mean that much to anyone? Sorry for the loss, but all it makes me think is…have they lost their damn minds!
