England and Russia Fans Brawl at Euro 2016 (Videos)
The 2016 European Championships in France have provided plenty of excitement on the field already, and things haven’t been boring in the stands either.
At least that was the case during Saturday’s opening round match-up between England and Russia. According to reports, fans of the two teams had been fighting in the streets of Marseille for days leading up to their contest, and things escalated in the stands when Russian fans stormed the English section at the Stade Velodrome.
UEFA is currently in considering possible sanctions for both sides, with Russia likely to receive the harsher punishment—should any be handed down.
Here’s a look at the Russian fans attacking England’s supports in the stands during Saturday’s Group B match:
