Tipster Emir C. was not only kind enough to send this video of European soccer-fan violence along, but he provided a historical context for said wilding. To wit:

Away team scores. Home fans storm the field and run the away team off even inflicting injuries on some. Oh and home team is Croatian and away team is Bosnian. They're both located in the same city of Mostar where they fought the civil war in the '90s between each other.

YahooSport UK offered this footnote to Emir's story: "Trouble broke out after Rijad Demic scored for Velez in extra time. Zrinjski fans broke through a fence and headed towards the Velez players, who fled. Zrinjski and Velez represent opposite sides in the ethnically-divided town of Mostar, which is split into Croat and Muslim-run sectors."

The applause and orderly return to assigned seats are special touches.
