Hooliganism at Home?

LONDON () -- A Scottish doctor warned Sunday that England could see an increase in domestic violence if it loses its Euro 96 soccer semi-final match against Germany this week.


Dr. Mac Armstrong, secretary to the British Medical Association, said marital abuse in Edinburgh increased after Scotland's defeat by England last weekend.


Asked if England could see a similar trend he replied: "You effectively could. And it does say something about the effect of that kind of fervor on the national psyche."
