Protesters in Brazil attempted to get near two football stadiums last night where Confederations Cup matches were taking place.
Police fired tear gas at protesters in Salvador who attempted to interfere with the Italy v Brazil game. Meanwhile a crowd gathered in the centre of Belo Horizonte on Saturday and marched towards the Mineirao stadium, where Mexico were playing Japan in the Confederations Cup.
Protests took place in dozens of Brazilian cities on Saturday over government corruption, the poor quality of public services, the hosting of the current Conferations Cup and next year's 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Former Brazil forward Romario has described footballing authority FIFA as "the real president of Brazil" and said the money spent on stadiums for the 2014 World Cup could have been used to build thousands of new schools.
Romario, who spearheaded Brazil's attack when they won the 1994 World Cup and is now a congressman, said Brazil had spent more than twice as much on hosting the World Cup as Germany did in 2006 and South Africa four years later.
In a video post aired on several Brazilian newspapers' websites he said, amid times of hardship in the country, that the money could have been spent elsewhere.
Demonstrators have continued to clash with police near the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, situated in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.
Reports say that one person was killed yesterday amid the anti-government protests over poor public services, health, education and transport.
Protesters have taken over the affluent neighborhood of Leblon in the city Rio de Janeiro in Brazil as demonstrations against the high cost of public transport continue to spread across the country.
In a televised address Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said that further violent protest would not be tolerated.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has condemned the violence that has flared across the country in the last week in a televised address.
She said it risks disrupting an "historic opportunity" to deal with the nation's social problems.
Ms Rousseff, who has faced criticism for failing to respond to the unrest, praised the giant protests but said the burning of cars and bloody street battles must end.
Addressing her nation, she said the mass rallies show the "strength of the country's democracy" and commended the Brazilian youths' ambitions to become involved in "lobbying for change".
"We are listening, but we will not put up with violence," she said.
The Brazilian government is locked in an emergency cabinet meeting tonight - trying to find a way to end the violent protests that have swept the country.
Last night, more than a million people were out demonstrating. Corruption, failing public services and the cost of the World Cup are among their grievances.
