River Plate were relegated to Argentina's second division for the first time in their 110-year history on Sunday, sparking ugly street battles between police and fans.

River, who have been champions a record 33 times, drew 1-1 with Belgrano of the Nacional B division in the second leg of a relegation-promotion play-off at the Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires, condemning them to relegation after a 2-0 defeat in the first leg in Cordoba on Wednesday.

Fans in the 60,000-plus crowd at the Monumental went wild with rage just before the final whistle, throwing objects on to the pitch and some tried to climb over perimeter fencing to storm on to the field.

I watched the Vancouver game last night. Some great chances by the entertaining 17-year-old Omar Salgado and Camilo Sanvezzo, but only posts and misses in the end.
