Anti Riot Police Sent To Amsterdam After Morocco Defeated Belgium, City Turns Chaotic

Hundreds of police officers from the Anti Riot department were on Sunday evening sent to Amsterdam, the Hague and Rotterdam immediately after Morocco defeated Belgium in the World Cup group stage match. Morocco walked away with a 2-0 win against Belgium sending the spectators into the streets who started riots.

The police say that people in the three big cities and their neighbors came out carrying the flag of Morocco and the celebrations turned ugly. The fans started to harass motorists on the roads with others lighting fire works. The riots were so intense that transport activities were paralyzed for a couple of hours.

The police then issued a statement to civilians asking them to use alternative routes and avoid ares with riots. The two goals that gave Morocco victory were scored by Abdelhamid Sabiri and former AZ player Zakaria Aboukhlal. This is the first time since 1986 that Morocco has reached the knockout stage. It now has 4 points just like Croatia and a point ahead of Belgium in group F.
