VIDEO: Chaotic Scenes After Ivory Coast Fans Stormed The Pitch And Faced Off Against Riot Police

The scenes following Ivory Coast and Cameroon‘s goalless draw were troubled.

After the Coast confirmed their spot at next year’s African Cup of Nations tournament, thousands of supporters ran onto the pitch to celebrate.

While most of the fans were good natured, some were more a lot more frenzied and physical, with Gervinho finding that out for himself.

Footage of the scenes have now been posted online, and the images being projected are simply those of disorder and aggression. Tense scenes suddenly break out into riot police chasing fans towards the stands. It seems obvious that some police attacked fans in those exchanges.

A third year Journalism student and an aspiring sports journalist. May sound like a cliché but I’d love to turn my passion into a career. I’ve always enjoyed writing and I’m a massive Evertonian, so decided to put the two together and started writing for an Everton website. I’ve always found it easier to write about something that I’m interested in. Oh and I’ve recently picked up an interest in golf, all thanks to Rory McIlroy.
