Everton hosted Croatian side Hajduk Split for a Europa League qualifier this afternoon, which meant that hundreds of Hajduk fans traveled to Liverpool for the game. They appeared to be ready to get rowdy before the match, and they delivered once things started. Everton’s Michael Keane (no apparent relation) scored in the 30th minute, prompting Hajduk fans to make their displeasure known by attempting to fight security and gain access to the field.
Put simply, it was riot time. Play was suspended for a bit as security sought to quell the riled-up fans.
Here’s a better angle.
One did some toilet theft!
Everton scored a gorgeous goal before halftime and they appear to be cruising towards the glamor and bright lights of, uh, the regular Europa League.
