England lost out in their bid to reach the 2018 World Cup Final after Mario Mandzukic scored late in extra time, as Croatia made history in reaching their first final of the competition.

The outcome of the game didn’t go down well with many fans, as they were spotted exchanging blows after the final whistle.

It is not known what sparked the brawl.

Footage shows dozens of football fans looking on in horror as men punch each other, one man is even knocked to the floor in the vicious brawl.

West Midlands Ambulance service confirmed that the number of 999 calls had shot up since Croatia beat England 2-1 in the World Cup semi-final.

The service said it had taken over 240 emergency calls in the first hour since the football finished, compared to just 120 when fans were placated by the match.

Assistant Chief officer Nathan Hudson branded the number of assaults and large scale fights as “madness” in a tweet shortly after the game.

A spokesperson wrote: “Come on West Midlands, show some dignity & respect towards each other!
“Look how our 999 calls have rocketed after the final whistle with numerous assaults & fights reported.

“Our @England team have been gracious in defeat, fans should be too #respect.”

A spokesman for the Met Police told The Sun Online that figures on call outs were not yet available but said there had been no major incidents.
