Roving packs of German soccer fans brawl on London streets (VIDEO)

A video of roving bands of German soccer fans brawling in the streets of London before Saturday's UEFA Champions league finals at Wembley Stadium was posted on YouTube.  The frightening footage shows hundreds of fans of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich clashing. The misanthropes tossed chairs and bottles before squaring off in isolated fights where they kicked and punched each other while chanting team songs.

Real soccer fans around the world can't be too happy with this.

Luckily, even the pre-game hooliganism couldn't over shadow a brilliant soccer match.  Arjen Robben, the Dutch wing who had been roundly criticized for struggling in the biggest moments, scored the decisive goal for Bayern in the 89th minute — lifting his team to a 2-1 victory over Borussia in front of a crowd announced at 86,298.
