Players wait in the dark after the floodlights failed at the Resistencia stadium. AFP photoThe prestige international between Argentina and Brazil was called off on Oct. 3 in the northern city of Chaco, when the floodlights failed just before kick-off.
After much hype and anticipation for the second leg of the “Superclasico de las Americas”, the teams were already on the pitch and the national anthems had been played before a massive floodlight failure threw the stadium into partial darkness. After a one-hour delay and no signs of improvement, the referee called the match off much to the disappointment of fans inside the Resistencia stadium.
There is no rescheduled date.
