Background: Fighting involving the team, officials, police, newsmen and spectators marred the Brazilian-Uruguayan Atlantic Football Championship match in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil on Thursday (29 April). The Brazilians, who won two-one on a penalty, became involved in fighting with the Uruguayans at the end of the game. The battle was stopped by officials, and the Brazilians left the field - but then rival newsmen attacked each other. The Uruguayans and officials joined in and when police tried to stop it they became involved in the punching and kicking.
Several people were treated for injuries afterwards, and as the Uruguayans left the field they were pelted with rubbish by spectators.
The match left Brazil in the Championship lead with seven points, followed by Argentina, with Paraguay lying third.
