This African Nations Cup qualifier was moved to AVOID violence — but it did not stop these players from scrapping at full-time.

With Libya still recovering from civil war, their clash with Algeria was moved to a neutral venue in Casablanca, Morocco.

However, after Algeria substitute Soudani scored a late winner, things turned sour.

Algeria’s Islam Slimani could be seen karate-kicking Libya’s Mohamed El Mughrabi in the back after the final whistle.

And other players and staff also got involved as the ugly scenes escalated.

Soudani’s goal gives the Algerians a crucial lead heading into the second leg on Wednesday.

This winner of the tie will automatically qualify for the African Nations Cup early next year.
