The photos of 40,000 Nigeria soccer fans in a 25,000-seat stadium are stunning and terrifying

New, comments

Nigeria hosted Egypt in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match on Friday and A LOT of fans wanted to watch in person. So many, in fact, that they crammed into every nook and cranny of the stadium. In ways that seem incredibly dangerous.

That is one of the most shocking crowd shots you'll see. When you try to pack in 15,000 extra fans, things get dicey. Fans on top of the scoreboard, packed into a tower, even up on the lights platform.

That scene looks incredibly dangerous, but fortunately it appears everyone made it out of the stadium safely.
