SAO PAULO - Hundreds of Chilean fans face deportation from Brazil after charging through the media centre at the Maracana Stadium.

This after fans were unable to secure tickets for the match between Chile and Spain.

Supporters then tried to gate crash the venue.

Fan Jorge Gonzalez described his deportation as heart breaking.

He was part of a group of 300 fans who out of desperation tried to gain illegal entry into the stadium.

The police arrested the majority of the rampaging fans after thy hit a dead end inside.

Passports were then confiscated and fans were given 72 hours to leave the country or face serious charges.

Gonzalez maintained they didn't mean to harm anyone after they failed to buy tickets outside the stadium on the black market.

He added he has no regrets and said he would do it again if given the chance.
