26 injured in Krawallen in Mexico
After a brawl at a football match in Central Mexico, the number of injured has risen to at least 26. This said the governor of the state of Querétaro, Mauricio Kuri, in a press conference.
Accordingly, three of them were in a critical condition. The first league games set for Sunday were canceled by the Mexican League of Solidarity with those affected.
In view of the violence and chaos, the newspaper "El Universal" wrote from the "Blackest Day in the History of Mexican Football". In the game between the FC Querétaro and Atlas Guadalajara in the Stadium La Corregidora in Querétaro, pendants of both teams were initially started on the grandstand and then stormed on the field, where they were partially attacking chairs and rods.
Women and children sought protection in the stadium tunnels. Players flared into the dressing rooms. Querétaro goalkeeper Washington Aguerre was one of those who stayed on the court and tried to influence people. The game was interrupted in the 62nd minute at 0: 1 and then canceled.
The civil protection of the state of Querétaro had reported at the night on Sunday of at least 22 injured. Nine of them were brought to the hospital, two among them with serious injuries, it continued in a tweet.
Dead, of which they had been talked about in the first reports and who were feared in the face of violent images, confirmed neither civil protection nor the government of the state of Querétaro until Sunday afternoon.
The Mexican football league condemned the operations in the Stadium La Corregidora and announced that an investigation had been initiated. League President Arriola said that those responsible would be punished for the lack of security in the stadium.
In Mexico and other Latin American countries such as Argentina and Brazil, it always comes to fan violence in football.
