LONDON (AP) - One of English soccer's showpiece tournaments has been marred by violence at Wembley Stadium, with Millwall fans fighting among themselves and with security officials.

The disorder revived memories of Millwall's struggle with hooliganism in the 1970s. Police and stewards appeared to be slow to react as the trouble built throughout the second half of the FA Cup match, which Wigan won 2-0 Saturday to advance to the final for the first time in its history.

London police said 10 people were arrested following "sporadic disorder among fans in the Millwall supporters' area," adding the investigation was ongoing. No serious injuries were reported, but several fans were bloodied.
