This is the horrifying moment when a bloodied Argentinian fan is led away after a scuffle with Mexican fans in the stands at yesterday’s game between the two nations.
Footage of the brawl appeared to show the Argentine fan punching a rival supporter on the ground before another man wearing a Mexican top joined the fight and repeatedly slapped him in the face.
Video of the bloody fight at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Qatar went viral overnight.
And now a new video has emerged showing an Argentine supporter with blood on his face and shirt being escorted by security forces from the scene of the violence.
The unidentified fan, a middle-aged man, appeared to be trying to send a message from the cellphone in his hand as he was being taken away.

It was not immediately clear this morning if he had been arrested.
A man who described himself as a pal of the bloodied Argentine posted a photo of him online after the crash showing him with facial wounds and dried blood on his neck and top, writing: “He’s a friend of mine so is it they left him.’
Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Luis Ebrard Casaubon confirmed that no Mexican nationals had been arrested.
He wrote on Twitter: “The government of Qatar informs me that no Mexicans have been arrested during the World Cup so far. Good!!’

Mexicans filmed themselves singing “F##k Messi” before a scuffle broke out between fans.
Subsequent footage showed Mexican fans using the Falkland Islands to taunt Argentinian fans before last night/Saturday night’s game.
They infuriated Argentines on a Doha bus they were traveling on together by chanting in Spanish: “They speak English in the Falkland Islands.”
They referred to the disputed area by their Spanish name, Las Malvinas.
An angry Argentine tried to stop them by approaching them on the bus where the video was filmed, shouting: “No, no. Not that. Stop it. I’ll let you get away with other things, but not this.’
