The mass brawl turned into clashes with the police.

As the RTBF television channel reports, the Belgian fans wreaked havoc on the streets of Brussels, and the mass brawl turned into clashes with the police.

After the defeat of the Red Devils in the 2018 World Cup semi v France, fans rioted on Bainville-aux-Miroirs next to the giant screen for viewing matches. The disgruntled fans began to turn tables in local cafes upside down and staged a massive brawl. After the arrival of the special forces, the aggression of the crowd spilled over to the police; they showered stones on officers. One female police officer was slightly injured, she was hospitalized, the report said.
