The revolution can wait, Barcelona are playing!
- Mass protesters in Khartoum, Sudan rally against President Omar al-Bashir
- They have upstaged mass sit-in outside Sudan’s defense ministry
- But even political cause can wait when Messi and co. are playing
Things continue to run downhill in Khartoum, Sudan, as several thousand protesters staged a four day sit-in outside the defense ministry of Sudan, a large North African country.
It is known the protesters want to see the end of President Omar al-Bashir's 30-year tyranny and hope for a civilian transitional government which they plan to negotiate with the army, dubbing it “the guarantor of the political system in Sudan”.
But even brave freedom fighters are not immune to the beauty of Barcelona's football as they put up several screens across the square to watch Barcelona beat United.
Luke Shaw's own goal brought Barcelona the win over Manchester United in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final. The ball deflected off the defender after Luis Suarez's shot and went in. The referee ruled the goal out at first but then determined that it should stand after reviewing the episode.
Thus, Barca gained an important away goal advantage ahead of the second leg that will be played at the Camp Nou next week. Barcelona have a La Liga game against Huesca in between the United clashes
