Violence erupts again at Euro 2016 in Lille street battles
Russian, Slovakian and English hooligans involved in running battles with the French security forces in the streets of Lille.
Fresh violence has erupted at the European Championship in France with security forces battling gangs of hooligans in the streets of Lille with tear gas, before charging against Russian, Slovakian and English troublemakers.
The trouble flared after Slovakia’s 2-1 victory over Russia in the northern city, where Russian, Slovakian and English supporters have converged. England play Wales in nearby Lens at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Thursday.
Uefa this week issued a warning to both England and Russia that the teams could be ejected from the tournament if there was a repeat of the violent scenes that marred the 1-1 draw between the sides in Marseille last Saturday. However, Uefa can only impose sanctions for incidents that occur inside Euro 2016 host stadiums.
