Stuttgart:

Clashes broke out between England and Germany fans in Stuttgart on Saturday. The police was forced to intervene to break up the violence. Thousands of ticketless English and German fans were watching the Germany-Sweden game on big screens when the English fans who had been drinking began taunting the German fans. Shortly after the game finished, they began throwing plastic chairs and bottles at German fans who retaliated in the same fashion. This is not the first time that fans from these two countries have clashed at the World Cup.
