South Africa Netherlands WCup Soccer

From Bloomberg News:

A stampede of fans hospitalized 15 people before a soccer World Cup warm-up match today between Nigeria and North Korea in Johannesburg, South African police said.

One of them was a police officer who was “seriously wounded” after supporters forced open gates to the Makhulong Stadium in Johannesburg’s Tembisa township this afternoon, according to an e-mailed police statement. A second police official was slightly injured, it said.

“Police members immediately started implementing crowd management measures but the crowd became unruly and pushed against the gates, forcing the gates open on two occasions,” the statement said.

The World Cup kicks off in Johannesburg at the end of this week. Several teams have already arrived and are playing preparation matches in stadiums that are not designated for the tournament. Makhulong is not among World Cup stadiums.
