At The Commencement Of The England Match, Hungary Fans Scuffle With Police Inside Wembley Stadium

Posted by

Hungary fans clashed with police officers at the opening of their team’s World Cup qualifier against England on Tuesday night, causing further nasty scenes.

After fighting broke out in the away section inside the first ten minutes, Fifa is expected to begin an inquiry, and the event will raise more questions about Hungary’s fans’ behavior.

The incident began when officers entered the away end to arrest a fan suspected of racially abusing a steward, according to the Metropolitan police.

The Metropolitan Police Events Twitter account said: “Shortly after the start of tonight’s match at Wembley, officers entered the stand to arrest a spectator for a racially aggravated public order offence after comments made towards a steward. As the officers made the arrest, minor disorder broke out involving other spectators. Order was quickly restored and there have been no further incidents at this stage.”

Disputes between police personnel and black-shirted Hungary supporters erupted soon. In an apparent attempt to restore order, police used batons, but they were swamped and forced back onto the concourse.
