Events in Poznan, Poland were marred by violent clashes ahead of the game.
Polish police say they've arrested 14 football fans involved in a brawl that broke out ahead of the match between Ireland and Croatia.
A police official said police detained 10 Poles, three Irish fans and one Croat, and are still trying to determine what role they had in the fight.
Video footage showed chairs toppled on the square and police arriving in force to make arrests.
The violence comes after Russia fans attacked stadium stewards Friday night in Wroclaw.
