Albufeira, Portugal, Jun. 15 (UPI) - More violence by British soccer fans broke out in Portugal, one day after 83 fans were arrested for rioting in England, The Times of London said Tuesday.
 

Police in riot gear in the town of Albufeira arrested 10 British fans who had been drinking heavily when they began throwing bottles outside a bar. One Portuguese and a Russian were also arrested.

The violence flared less than 24 hours after the British fans were praised for their model behavior at the Euro 2004 soccer tournament.

It was the first serious incident involving English fans in Portugal since the tournament began during the weekend and a contrast to the previous day when not a single arrest was made after England's stunning last-minute 2-1 defeat by France.

In London, a Foreign Office spokeswoman said the British nationals had been detained for public disturbance-related matters.

"We are in touch with the authorities and consular assistance will be offered in the normal way," she said.

Hey Aspect welcome back good to see you!

Well looking at the reports it seems the police went wading in with batons when they could have difused the situation. When we play at home in domestic, european and big international matches there is minimal trouble. But as soon as we play abroad there is lots of trouble. Makes you wonder if ot's other countries causing alot of it and we always get the blame.
