South America perfects the art of football rioting

Colombian rivals don’t get even, they get stabby

When Martin Atkinson refused to call a penalty against Portsmouth on Saturday, most Manchester United fans showed some slight confusion before continuing to mentally plan their long drive back to the home counties.

Colombian fans show a little more passion – when America de Cali were denied a penalty against fierce rivals Deportivo de Cali, the players engaged in a spot of fisticuffs and the fans soon followed suit. Before they knew it, local authorities had 80 wounded and 16 stab victims on their hands.

The bar has been raised, it’s your turn to respond, Millwall.
