This is the moment of horror when Brazilian footballers fled for safety after a heavy shooting broke out during a U-20 match in Macaé over the weekend.

Twenty-nine minutes into the second half of a Carioca U-20 Serie B1 match between Serra Macaense and Carapebus, the young footballers ran off the pitch due to a terrifying shooting.

Video footage of the game at Moacyrzão Stadium shows Carapebus’s goalkeeper on the ground receiving treatment for an injury he sustained during the game before loud shots were heard.

Initially, the players and coaching staff were unable to understand what was happening before dispersing for cover as the shooting intensified. The injured goalkeeper managed to get up and limp away from the field to seek protection.

According to Brazilian outlet UoL, the terrifying shots were the result of a police operation in a community near the stadium.

No one was injured and the game did not continue, with the Court of Sports Justice to determine the outcome of the contest. The two teams were tied at 0-0 at the time of the incident and the organization will determine if it is necessary to replay the match or if the result will be 0-0.

The shooting also led to the cancellation of the Carioca Women’s Championship match between Serra Macaense and Duque de Caxi, which would be played on the same ground after the U-20 match.

Breno Monsef, who was in charge of commentary for the third-division game, said the shootout lasted about 40 minutes.

“Clearly the players started to see if that was really happening and when they found out they ran for cover,” he told UoL.

The shooting lasted for 40 minutes. With intensity it was about 20 minutes, then it was sporadic. ‘ Monsef said he was commenting from a makeshift structure in one of the locker rooms, as the stadium booths were closed.

The incident in Macaé was followed by another shootout during a game in South America over the weekend, with an Argentine match plunged into chaos when a shootout broke out towards the end of the match.

The players of Huracán las Heras and Ferro Carril Oeste were filmed fleeing the field after soccer manager Mauricio Romero, who coaches Ferro, was hit by the bullet.

He was treated on the spot before being taken to hospital, where he is said to be “fine and out of harm’s way.”

The incident occurred towards the end of a third division match between local team Huracán and Ferro in Las Heras in the Mendoza province of western Argentina.

Witnesses said the shooting started outside the stadium but continued inside as hooligan fans tried to make their way to the ground.

Families watching from the stands threw themselves to the ground when shots rang out.

Romero, dressed in a yellow reflective jacket, was seen clutching his left shoulder after being hit by ducking players before running into the locker room along with match officials.

The injured party’s club issued a statement after the scare, which caused the game to be suspended with ten minutes to go.

“Mauricio Romero suffered a gunshot wound to his left shoulder but he is fine and out of danger.”

It is believed that he has already been interviewed by the police after filing a complaint and the Argentine Football Association has launched an investigation.

There were no immediate reports of arrests.
