Ley us recall, that there were clashes between English and Russian football fans on the square near the Old Port in Marseilles. First, a group of British fans pelted police with bottles, so the police had to use smoke bombs and tear gas.

Later, Russian fans attacked the British, and continued to chase them after they retreated, fighting them in the alleys. There were reports of 16 wounded, including 1 Russian.

After the match Russia VS England, which ended with the score 1:1, the clashes continued.
