A player and a manager from Norway’s under 21 national team were injured during a brawl that broke out early Sunday morning outside a club on the Tel Aviv promenade, police reported Sunday. The player, Marcus Federson, and a team manager were lightly hurt but did not need medical treatment.

Around 4 a.m. Sunday police received a call about a brawl outside the Clara nightclub next to the Dolphinarium and sent large number of special patrol officers to the scene.

Police detained two suspects involved in the brawl, a 25- year-old Ashdod resident, and a 23-year-old Kfar Saba man.

The fight came hours after the Norwegian under-21 team was defeated in the semi-finals of the Under 21 Championship 3-0 by Spain.
