Tensions spilled over into the fan zone and it was reported that several people suffered minor injuries in the ensuing brawl.

Argentina and Mexico face off in a mighty Group C clash at 6am AEDT on Sunday morning at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

There was a distinct lack of authority during the scuffle, but that’s expected to change for the game, which is estimated to be attended by 80,000 fans.

The World Cup has been mired in controversy so far, with Qatar’s human rights record thrown into the spotlight and the last-minute beer ban angering fans and a major sponsor.

The country’s side also became the first FIFA World Cup hosts to lose their opening game, prompting an embarrassing fan exit at half-time.
