Nazi sympathizer invades pitch during Ghana-Germany game

FIFA's plea to eliminate racism at this year's World Cup continues to fall on deaf ears. Despite a vehement campaign from the organization and pleas and public service announcements from teams and players, it has been one of the overriding themes of the 2014 World Cup.

The anti-discrimination Fare network, which made reports to FIFA about the matter on Thursday, noted that there were several neo-Nazi signs at matches involving Russia and Croatia.

And on Saturday, it took center stage again when a Nazi sympathizer rushed the field during the Ghana-Germany game. No security attempted to stop him as he took his shirt off to reveal a pro-Nazi message.

He had to be ushered off the field by Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari.

Several German fans also showed up to the game with their faces painted black.
