Football fans fight – level 1

05-09-2014 07:00

People play a football match in Santiago de Chile. This match is very important to the fans. Some fans start to riot.

They break things and throw things at police. The fans and police fight. Police look for these violent fans. They will ban them from their football clubs.

Difficult words: riot (to be aggressive, break things and fight), violent (a violent person destroys things), ban (they will not be allowed to be members anymore).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Does something like this happen in your country?
