"It was a night of torment. I thought again and again about how the violence of a few can hold a match and a whole city in its grip. When I saw that the Serbian ultras were trying to break through a screen separating them from the Italian fans I was really scared. I saw many people with children turning on their heels. When it's like that anything can happen."

-- Italy coach Cesare Prandelli on the Serbian fans' rioting that forced the abandonment the Euro 2012 qualifying game in Genoa. Prandelli was a Juventus player during the infamous Heysel Stadium tragedy in 1985 in which 39 people died when a wall collapsed as Juventus fans fled Liverpool hooligans. The violence at the Italy-Serbia game resulted in 16 people hospitalized, including a police officer with first degree burns. (AFP)
