Around 600 Czech and German fans began fighting on Na Prikope Street in the centre of Prague before police intervened. Nobody was hurt in the incident. Earlier, police stopped nearly two hundred suspected hooligans at the border between the two countries. An estimated 3000 German fans travelled to the Czech capital to see the game.
