Sunday night at London's Wembley Stadium, some English soccer fans lived up to their reputation as being the worst in the world. Devastated by their country's defeat in the final of the Euro Cup, they took their frustrations out on fans of the victorious Italian team.

Security forces broke up the melee, but media reports show it was not an isolated incident. Why did this have to happen and could it have been avoided? Our friend (My Cousin Federico) and expert on Italian art, culture, history and soccer, Dr. Federico Pellegrini, explains in a live report from Rome on the morning after.
