"Croatian Football Hooligans" "Croatia Football Fans Clash" Croatian fans threw chairs, bottles and flares at Polish riot police in the city of Poznan as they clashed ahead of the Euro 2012 game between Croatia and Ireland. A police spokesman said three people were arrested after the incident in Poznan's old town square, where thousands of Irish and Croatian fans, many clad in the national red-and-white checkerboard shirts, gathered ahead of the match. The spokesman said it began after a clash in one of the bars between intoxicated fans of two rival Croatian teams from Zagreb and Split shortly after 5:00 pm (1500 GMT). The police said it would examine closed circuit video from the centre square to identify additional culprits. Croatia beat Ireland 3-1 in the Group C match.
