Valencia and Inter Milan brawl at final whistle

It all got a bit out of hand at the final whistle in last night's Champions League match between Valencia and Inter Milan. Valencia's Carlos Marchena aimed a kick at Carlos Marchena kicked out at Inter's Nicolas Burdisso sparking a brawl which continued into the tunnel.

Particularly worth watching out for are grey tracksuit-clad Valencia substitute David Navarro (who runs on to the pitch, allegedly breaks Burdisso's nose and then seems to believe he is involved in a game of kiss-chase) and two Japanese fans whose faces signal the start of the fight.

Where was the referee? As soon as the trouble starts he's nowhere to be seen.

It reminds me of an American / Canadian hockey game from the 1970s. I especially love the game of "tag" after the Valencia sub got in his cheapshot.

Were the Inter players trying to slide tackle him in retaliation? What's that?
