Five other fans, whose activities police were monitoring, voluntarily left the country yesterday.

Members of the dog unit raided Christian Progressive School in Pretoria at 7am yesterday, where 165 Argentinian fans were staying.

National joint operational and intelligence structure spokesperson Brigadier Sally de Beer said: "The police have been monitoring the activities of this group. They had identified several persons whose continued presence in this country could be a threat to public order and stability and could even disrupt the 2010 Fifa World Cup."

The men are also referred to as the Barra Bravas.
