German, Ukraine Football Fans Clash At Euro 2016 – Nigeria Politics Online


German football fans clashed with Ukrainian supporters in the French city of Lille on Sunday in the latest outbreak of violence at Euro 2016, an AFP photographer said.

The Germans lobbed bottles and punched Ukrainian rivals for several minutes in the trouble near the northern city’s train station.

More than 50 known German hooligans were involved in the fighting, according to a German police source quoted by German sports news agency SID.

“There were no arrests and the police did not need to intervene,” police told AFP.

World champions Germany play Ukraine in their first match of Euro 2016 at Pierre-Mauroy Stadium in Lille on Sunday.

The tournament has been marred by violence in the first three days of action.

UEFA warned England and Russia they could be thrown out of the competition if their fans cause any more violence, after supporters from both countries and French locals fought pitched battles in Marseille on Saturday.
