Chilean Soccer Fans Finish National Anthem A Cappella After FIFA Cuts It Short
FIFA has a ridiculous rule that states a team’s National Anthem can run no longer than 90 seconds. Because of this, some participating countries have altered the rhythm of their anthem while others just allow it to be cut off.
In the past, some fans have scoffed at this rule, proceeding to continue the anthem a cappella. This is what Chilean fans did before their match with Spain and it totally rocked Maracanã Stadium in Rio.
After that, it should have been no surprise the defending World Cup champions Spain lost 2-0 to Chile, leading to their elimination from soccer’s biggest event.
