Amputee Brawl Breaks Out During Soccer MatchBy: Amanda Crum - June 4, 2013
A soccer match between Holland and Belgium on Saturday turned ugly after a man pulled another player down by his leg. What made it especially ugly is that the man who went down only had one leg.
The amputee-only match was the first of its kind, and was marred by the incident-turned-brawl. Afterwards, a massive fight broke out between the teams which was caught on video.
Belgian player Marnix Huys shrugged off the fight, however, saying that all in all, things went well.
“I felt we were doing well,” he said. “A couple of beginner’s mistakes, but all in all we had reason to be happy. It was a pleasant match with a few incidents that should not have happened, but other than that things went well. In the end we got stronger and stronger both physically and technically.”
