Charity amputee football match descends into mass brawl

World of Sport

Having a football match for charity always sounds like a good idea but you are playing with fire if you invite two rival teams to compete against each other.

Neighbours Belgium and the Netherlands never take things lightly when they meet and that was certainly what happened in this match which is believed to be the first ever contest between the nation's amputee football teams.

Trouble broke out after one player tripped another as rival players quickly started clashing and shouting at each other.

Able-bodied fans then raced onto the pitch to continue the rumble and with somebody filming the event on their mobile phone, a predicable viral video was the result.
