Spartak Moscow fans once again proved a nightmare to police ahead of their team’s Europa League tie against Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night.

The Basque police had their work cut on when droves of firework-toting ne’er-do-wells started scrapping in the streets around San Mames before the game, which Spartak won 2-1 (but lost 4-3 on aggregate).

Of course the last time we heard from Spartak fans, they were busy shooting flares at referees, for which UEFA charged them €60,000.

Sadly, the Guardian are reporting that a police officer died during the skirmish after suffering a heart attack. Five people were also arrested.

This World Cup is going to be a hoot.

    What the hell is wrong with them? Why are they trying to kill people? UEFA should simply give the RFU the boot – problem solved. Human filth
