Huge brawl erupts after Turkey v Cyprus U21s match

Published 1 Comments

Let’s face it: we all like to see football erupt into chaos from time to time.

Huge brawls don’t happen very often so, when they do, they inevitably go viral on social media and everyone either expresses faux outrage or laughs at the sheer hilarity of the situation.

This latest brawl, which recently took place in the international Under-21 match between Cyprus and Turkey, might be the best of 2016 so far.

The two countries don’t exactly see eye-to-eye on a number of political and diplomatic issues, so it’s hardly a surprise that mayhem ensued.
