The Saudi Arabia team is scheduled to play Uruguay on Wednesday, June 20.

While some of the matches have made headlines – especially when current World Cup holders team Germany lost to Mexico on Sunday – the internationally watched event has not been without other incidents.

On Saturday, a taxi crashed into a crowd on a sidewalk near Red Square in Moscow and injured at least seven people. Russian police say that the man was intoxicated and didn’t intend to harm people.
