An amputee soccer match between Holland and Belgium went from wholesome to brutal after fighting broke out on the pitch.

The charity match was being played in Westerloo, Antwerp on Saturday when one of the players grabbed an opponent's only working leg and used it to bring him crashing to the ground, according to the Daily Mail.

VTM Nieuws documented the brawl.


Players on both teams were each missing one leg, while the goalies had each suffered the loss of an arm. When the game was still tied 3-3, players took serious offence to the overt cheating and began to verbally express their anger, reports the Examiner.

When words failed, players began to exchange punches and it wasn't long until family members were also on the field. Soon what started as a fight between a few players grew to include 20 participants, according to the Inquisitr.

The situation was made worse by the players' use of crutches as extra weapons, according to The Epoch Times.

However, the match wasn't all bad. As intended, the game gave amputees a chance to play a sport they enjoyed while increasing their skills.

"I felt we were doing well. A couple of beginner's mistakes, but all in all we had reason to be happy," said Marnix Huys of the Belgian team, according to the Daily Mail. "It was a pleasant match with a few incidents that should not have happened, but other than that things went well. In the end we got stronger and stronger both physically and technically."
