"They pulled two guns on us, the rest of the match is not going to be played. They ambushed us and one of them pulled out a revolver and put it against (goalkeeper) Damian Albil's chest. Their security and police also hit us, there were around 20 of them."

-- Nestor Gorosito, coach of Argentine club Tigre, which claims it was attacked by about 20 men following a brawl involving players and officials as the teams left the field at halftime in the second leg of the  Copa Sudamericana final at Sao Paulo's Morumbi Stadium. Tigre refused to return to the field for the second half and Sao Paulo was handed the trophy. Argentine media carried photographs of a blood-stained locker room and comments from players saying they were hit with sticks. (Reuters)
