WORLD CUP winner Kevin Grosskreutz was involved in an incredible brawl at a German lower league match as he tried to stop kids getting beaten up.

The 2014 world champion, 30 — who now plays for KFC Uerdingen in the third tier of German football — was slapped in the face as he attempted to intervene in a row between around 10 rival fans.

Right-back and winger Grosskreutz was not playing, but attending a match of his hometown club VFL Kemminghausen in their match with FC Brambauer.

According to reports, Grosskreutz also acts as coach to Kemminghausen and he was unhappy as children in the crowd became embroiled in a brawl.

He told Ruhr news: “I went there because I saw 20 people running from them towards the crowd.

“I wanted to settle it down and said: ‘S**t there are children there! Stop it!’

“We hope for a peaceful outcome of the discussions after the game.”

Grosskreutz came to prominence at Borussia Dortmund under current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and was an unused substitute in Germany’s World Cup win in 2014.

He was relegated with Stuttgart to Bundesliga 2 in 2016, before moving to Darmstadt and then Uerdingen.
