Major post-match scuffles between teams in the Middle East is nothing new – earlier this month we featured the Lebanon-Kuwait mass brawl.
And certainly Egypt and Algeria have been at it before – most notably in the qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup which ignited a diplomatic row between the two countries.
The latest scuffleÂ occurredÂ following Algeria’s 1-0 final victory at the Military Games in Brazil on Saturday. Following the final whistle, Egypt striker Ahmed Eid (pictured left) was not a happy bunny.
Eid, visibly steaming, simply charged up to an Algerian player and Kung-Fu kicked him in the back, setting off an almighty brawl, seemingly involving both sets of teams, substitutes and coaching staff.
