Brahmanbaria district saw clashes and counter clashes among the fans of the Latin American sides that resulted in many injuries
Bangladesh may not enjoy a respectable position in global football but the love for the game in this part of the world is very much known and sometimes it creates mayhem and pandemonium that creates global headlines.
Among all the teams, Argentina and Brazil are the most followed in the country and the heat of the forthcoming Copa America final between the sides has created so much anxiety that even an Argentine outlet filed a report on the issue.
Buenos Aires Times published a report on their site Friday citing the quotes of local administration and the news was picked up by many other outlets around the world.
During the last week, amid the Copa, which is taking place thousands of miles away from Bangladesh in Brazil, Brahmanbaria district saw clashes and counter clashes among the fans of the Latin American sides that resulted in many injuries.
Now, despite the grave Covid-19 situation and countrywide strict lockdown, the local administration of Brahmanbaria is taking stricter measures like banning any gathering and preparing themselves for any potential cataclysm ahead of the grand finale.
