Celebrations amongst Chile fans turned dramatic following their defeat of Spain at the World Cup
Celebrations following Chile’s World Cup victory over Spain took a dramatic turn in Santiago last night, as wild street parties ended in clashes with police and significant damage to public property in the nation’s capital.
Victory for Chile at the World Cup was significant as it sealed their progression to the knockout stages of the tournament and sent reigning champions Spain home.
However, hours after supporters had gathered at the Plaza Italia to toast victory, police were forced to respond to fan violence, fires, and damage to 300 of the city's buses.
