South Africa football thugs brutally beat guard in riot after cup defeat

Kaizer Chiefs 0-2 Free State Stars Ea Lla Koto dump Amakhosi out of the Nedbank Cup

After the final whistle of the Nedbank Cup semi-final between hosts Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars, hundreds of fans invaded the pitch and the security officers were unable to cope adequately with the rampaging fans.

Police were partly to blame for a violent pitch invasion at a South African soccer match, where fans were caught on camera beating up security officials and destroying broadcast equipment, the country's soccer boss said on Monday.

"SAFA calls on members of the public to assist the South African Police Service (SAPS) with identifying the hooligans involved‚" the statement said.

Kaizer Chiefs's Vino Maphosa says that while they will be launching a probe into the riot internally, the police are definitely investigating the assault of a security guard on the field.

One female security guard was injured as a result of the scuffle with fans.

As the supporters beat the guard, a woman can be heard shouting: "They are going to kill".

Police have so far arrested two people for suspected acts of hooliganism.
