World Cup moments: Battle of Nuremberg

BBC Sport looks back to a stormy encounter between Portugal and Netherlands in the second round of the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Four players are sent off and 16 yellow cards handed out - the most in any World Cup match in history.

Portugal won the game 1-0, but the match was so bad-tempered it was latter dubbed the 'Battle of Nuremberg'.
