Brazilians have reacted with anger at a match between Poland and the country that beat them in the World Cup, saying it is a slap in the face.
The pair will take part in the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, which kicks off on Tuesday.
“What’s happening is a disgrace,” said Luka Vlakovic, the head of the football federation of the European Union.
“I don’t know who did this but we are all surprised at the response of the Poles.
We know it’s a shame for all the fans who came to Brazil for the World Cups.”
Poland was also knocked out of the tournament at the quarter-finals by the hosts Brazil, who have won their past five games.
The nation’s federation is now planning to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the results of the match.
“We are trying to put it on the record that we don’t approve of this and we want to put this issue to a referendum,” said president Andrzej Zborowicz.
“The people of Poland are not stupid.”
The match is the biggest international sporting event in Poland, with many Poles coming to Brazil to watch the matches and attend the tournament.
The game was played in front of more than 10,000 spectators, which was a record in a soccer stadium.
“It’s a great honour for the Polish football team,” said the former coach of the team.
“We played our best football today.
The Polish team has been doing so well and it’s time for us to be recognised.
We hope we will win the tournament.”
Brazilians have also reacted with disgust, calling the match “unacceptable”.
“This is an outrageous, humiliating insult,” said a Brazilian on Twitter.
Brazil has lost every match against Poland in the past, including a 1-0 loss to them in a World Cup qualifier in August.
The match will be held in front a sold-out crowd of about 6,000.
