[*] Over 100,000 people surrounded the stadium in the build up to this crucial match.
    The crowd stormed through the gates despite mounted police. It is estimated that
    more than 60,000 people crammed inside the stadium, more than twice its capacity.  
    Around 30 people were injured in the overcrowding, and one young boy died.  During
    the match the referee had to suspend play several times because the crowd spilled
    over onto the playing field.
