Trond Lervik, the coach for Norway's Herd team, reported that SPK Cosmos team from Russia had launched an attack after one of their players, who had been earlier sent off with red card for a violent tackle, ran back onto the pitch and karate-kicked one of the Norwegian boys (The Local). The other Russian boys then began beating up their Norwegian rivals, continuing even after the panicking referee blew the whistle to call off the match.
The police were called but by the time they arrived the Russian team had already left.
