Chi predict a riot!

It was a case of ninjas v rangers at QPR's training ground yesterday as a "friendly" between the Hoops and the Chinese Olympic team erupted into a 30 man brawl.

China defender Zheng Tao lay unconscious in the midst of the scuffle and had to be taken to hospital following the match, which was abandoned shortly after half-time with the hosts leading 2-1.

One witness described the scene at Rangers' Harlington training ground as one of "absolute mayhem".

He said: "I've never seen anything like it in my life.

"There were punches, kung-fu kicks and all sorts - it was absolute mayhem."

The Football Association have pledged to take action over the mêlée. "We are investigating and we will be seeking information," said a spokesman.

Watch the kerfuffle for yourself ... now if only England could be this passionate about friendlies! ;)
