The problems caused by Argentina’s loudest supporters have now earned them an even worse punishment, as more than 2,000 “barra bravas” will not be allowed into Brazil to support their own nation at the World Cup.

Our pals at Soccerly have the story:

The 2,100 ‘barra bravas’ hooligans are already the subject of banning orders from attending domestic matches in their own country.

“The Argentine authorities have given us a basis of information and these fans will be identified and prevented from entering,” said Luiz Eduardo Navajas.

“If they manage to get past the controls and are found in Brazil, they will be deported.”

Navajas said he had no worries about European hooligans disrupting the tournament as they are already banned from travelling to Brazil.

“They’re banned from leaving their countries. Their passports have already been confiscated and cannot enter Brazil. We’re working with England, Belgium and Germany,” added Navajas.

The report says there will be police delegations from all 32 participating World Cup nations, and it won’t just be Argentina “hooligans” prohibited from crossing the border; Criminals guilty of sex crimes will not be allowed into Brazil as well.

    Nationalism is part of football.

      And? That doesn’t mean you have to let other nation’s hoods into your country. Imagine if England had qualified for USA ’94?

      nationalism/jingoism, or the worship of the state, is among the most disgusting elements of human existence without which as much as 93% of violent deaths in the 20th century wouldn’t have occurred. Google democide for clarification.
