Chaos in Buenos Aires: Soccer Fans Riot in Argentina After World Cup Lose

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 9.38.20 AMEditor’s Note: Some people just can’t handle disappointment. I suppose it’s no use telling them it’s only soccer.

What started as a peaceful rally to support the Argentinian national team turned ugly as fans became violent and started to riot.

A gathering in Buenos Aires took a turn for the worse when Argentina lost 1-0 to Germany in the World Cup final, and riot police were forced to use tear gas and rubber bullets on the rowdy crowd.

According to an ESPN report, 20 riot police have been injured in the clash as fans – many of whom were reportedly drunk and masked – threw rocks at police and storefronts, and busted open a theater.
