About 500 soccer fans clashed with police after a match Saturday in London, and four officers were injured in the melee, Scotland Yard said.

One policeman was reported hospitalized with severe facial injuries, and 17 people were arrested, police said.

The violence, in which four police horses also were hurt, came the day after a London court imposed a life prison sentence on a soccer fan convicted of riot and assault after a game.

The fans in Saturday’s melee were supporters of the Millwall team, which had just defeated Leeds United at Millwall’s field in southeast London.
