We thought we had said good riddance to the days of football hooliganism, or at least the worst of it, but this footage of two gangs of ultras from Swedish clubs going at in Denmark is pretty shocking stuff.

The footage is a few days old at this stage but has been racking up the hits in recent days as fans of two Swedish clubs, Gothenburg (GAIS) and Helsingborgs, gathered together for what appeared to be an organised battle down a rural street in Denmark.

Thankfully, the row seems to last for only a couple of minutes but it is pretty fierce stuff while it does last, with fans of both clubs going at it in a manner that will be familiar to anyone who has seen recent films like Green Street or The Football Factory, both of which documented football hooliganism in England at its worst.

Shocking stuff.
